History & History Related Items

The community was first known as Alberta. In 1908, the name was changed to Richfield. Some say the name change was an enticement to lure businessmen and investors to the small town. Once the railroad appeared in the area in the late 1800's, many small towns were created of which Alberta was one. Two other towns of the same sort were Marley and Pagari. Founded in 1907 with few buildings, the town grew with the help of two land acts - the Homestead Act and the Carey Land Act. Because of its location along the railroad line, Richfield grew even more.
