Below is some general information about Richmond:
Richmond is a city in the seat of Fort Bend County in the U.S. state of Texas within the HoustonÐThe WoodlandsÐSugar Land metropolitan area. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, the city population was 11,679. Richmond city boundaries are joined on one hand with Sugar Land and with the city of Rosenberg on the other hand. Even though it is the county seat, thus containing most of the local government offices, and the historic center of the area, it actually is one of the smaller cities in the area. Adjacent Sugar Land is the largest city in the county.
In 1822, a group of Austin’s colonists went up the Brazos River, stopping near present day Richmond where they built a fort called Fort Bend. Named after Richmond, England, the town was among the 19 cities first incorporated by the short-lived Republic of Texas, in 1837. Early residents of the city include many prominent figures in Texas lore such as Jane Long, Deaf Smith, and Mirabeau Lamar, who are all buried in Richmond. On August 16, 1889, the town was the site of the Battle of Richmond, an armed fight culminating the Jaybird-Woodpecker War, a violent feud over post-Reconstruction political control of Fort Bend County. The Mayor from 1949 until his death in 2012 was Hilmar Moore. Historically Richmond had government agencies and nonprofit organizations, while most of the area private businesses were located in Rosenberg.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 3.9 square miles, of which 3.7 square miles of it is land and 0.2 square miles of it is water. In 2003 Jeannie Kever of the Houston Chronicle said some of the old buildings have been reincarnated as shops or law offices. But in other ways, life in Richmond isn’t so different from that in the big city, with its Wal-Mart and fast-food joints, check-cashing businesses and strip-center sprawl. As of 2006 several strip malls are along U.S. Route 59. During the same year the community included tack stores, two lane blacktop roads, horse ranches. John P. Lopez of the Houston Chronicle said Richmond is a city of contradiction and transition. It’s as if the place is not sure if it wants to be a part of Houston’s bustle or remain a slow-paced farm and ranch town. It tries to be both and It is part Acres Homes, part Fort Bend County Fair.
John P. Lopez of the Houston Chronicle said in 2006 that there are a lot of simple scenes. And there are places where reality has polluted neighborhoods. The wealthiest neighborhood, as of 2003, in Richmond is Hillcrest. Winston Terrace, another community, had its first houses built in 1940. Construction increased around the end of World War II. Most of the houses were built between 1940 and 1965. Jeannie Kever of the Houston Chronicle said that Winston Terrace is a swath of mid-20th-century America, with sweeping oak trees and colorful brick or wood bungalows, named for the descendants of one of the region’s most illustrious pioneers. Mud Alley as of 1985 had older bars and strip clubs. Mud Alley is located in an area which, in 1985, housed most of the black people in Richmond. As of 1993 many police raids for drugs occurred in Mud Alley. Mud Alley was known by several other nicknames, including Little Boomtown. Historically the area had a lot of recreational drugs.
Richmond is served by Lamar Consolidated Independent School District and Fort Bend Independent School District. Seven elementary schoolsÑAustin, Long, McNeill, Pink, Seguin, Smith, and VelasquezÑare located in and serve Richmond. Wessendorff Middle School, Lamar Junior High School, and Lamar Consolidated High School serve Richmond. The three schools are in Rosenberg. Various schools operated by LCISD and neighboring Fort Bend Independent School District bear Richmond addresses, but do not serve the city of Richmond. Foster High School and Briscoe Junior High in LCISD and Travis High School and Bush High School in the FBISD bear Richmond, Texas addresses.
