Richmond, Indiana

Settled along the Whitewater River in 1806 by Quakers, Richmond is one of the older cities in Indiana and is home to more than 36,000 people. Richmond is a city largely within Wayne Township, Wayne County, of which it is the county seat. Richmond is still home to several Quaker institutions, including Earlham College. Richmond is noted for its historic architecture. Particularly notable buildings are the 1902 Pennsylvania Railroad Station and the 1893 Wayne County Court House.

Early on, Richmond’s economy was increasingly based on manufacturing. Between the late 19th century through the mid-20th century, Richmond was once known as "the lawnmower capital" because it was a center for manufacturing of lawn mowers. Manufacturers included Davis, Motomower, and Dille-McGuire. The farm machinery builder Gaar-Scott was also based in Richmond. The Davis Aircraft Company, builder of a light parasol wing monoplane, operated in Richmond beginning in 1929. Wayne Agricultural Works moved to Richmond. Wayne was a manufacturer of horse-drawn vehicles, a precursor of the motorized school bus. From the early 1930s through the 1940s, several automobile designers and manufacturers were located in Richmond. Among the automobiles locally manufactured was the Richmond, built by the Wayne Works. In the 1950s, Wayne Works changed its name to Wayne Corporation. The company was a leader in school-bus safety innovations, but it closed in 1992. In recent years, like many cities that previously depended on manufacturing, Richmond has to create a new economy.
