In the year 1859, David E. Henderson, Issac Morris and Jonathan Hemmingway families formed the nucleus for the town of Richville. Lured to this spot in 1861 come Thomas Rich (1817-1884) who had the honor of having the town named after him but moved to Porterville. David Henderson built the first log house down by the east canyon creek. When other families came they were advised by David Henderson to build on higher ground because of the flooding, which he had experienced from the 1860 spring runoff. This same year John H. Rich, Gillerpie Waldron and Solomon Conley joined the group, followed by Albert Douglas Dickson and a year later his two brothers, William and John and his father, Billa Dickson in 1862. Add to the list names of George W. Taggart, George Seaman, Henry and Morgan Hinman, and later on the Oluf Rose, Sanford Colson Porter, Baltzar Peterson, John Wood, Fredrick Clark, George Brough, and William Smith families and others who were attracted to this beautiful place. I have often wondered how they were able to communicate with each other as many were Scandinavia and others were English.
