Legacy Communities: Richland/Hood

The town of Richland was established in 1860 primarily as a shipping site for grain.  At its height, Richland boasted a hotel, grocery store, church and post office, but the hamlet fell into decline by 1880.

By the 1920s, the town was being promoted as a Dutch-inspired tourist destination—the “Netherlands of America,”  featuring Dutch architecture with the early Hood Hotel.  (Find more on Hood’s history and current activities in the Fall 2015 issue of Delta Voice!)
