Richmond is a small city in Cache County, Utah, with a population of over 2,000. It is known as the location for the filming of ‘Napoleon Dynamite’.
The original settlers in Richmond arrived in 1859, the first being Agrippa Cooper and his family. The actual town site was laid out in 1861 and it was incorporated as a city in 1868. The town was named either after the Mormon Apostle Charles C Rich, or the deep rich mound of soil formed by the Cherry and City Creeks.
