A Brief History of Richland, Pennsylvania
Born of an independent spirit, Richland residents held a public meeting to explore “The Advantages of a Borough” on August 9, 1906. One week later, they presented a proposed survey, and petition for the creation of a new borough, to the presiding Judge, A.W. Ehrgood, who granted the Charter request. At one time, Richland had more than thirteen industrial establishments employing its residents and inhabitants of nearby towns.
