A brief history of Richmond, Macomb County, Michigan

The township of Richmond, the most northeasterly of the county, was not settled as early or as thickly at first as were the townships nearer Detroit and the Clinton river. The first entries of lands were made December 1, 1832 in Sec. 30, on which day both Edwin B. Rose of Macomb County and John Hale of Detroit entered a tract in that section. The Goodar farms on 33-Mile Road is the location of the property. Edwin Rose took 40 acres and John Hale took 80 acres on that date. The latest entry for government lands was made April 4, 1884, by Richard Ball in Section 16, which is 52 years after the first entries were made.

The township was organized on March 6, 1838, and the first town meeting was held at the house of George Perkins, located at the intersection of 33-Mile Road and Armada Ridge. Many people attended the meeting and since the house was not large enough to accommodate them, they adjourned to a woodpile for their meeting and elections.
As many of the early settlers had come from New York State, Phillip Cudworth, a former resident of Richmond, Ontario County, New York, suggested naming the township after his place of birth. Most of the land north of 32-Mile Road, also known as Division, was taken up from the Government by Erastus Beebe in 1835. The area where Armada Ridge and Memphis Ridge (M-19) meet was known as Beebe's Corners, a name which it retained until the granting of the village charter in 1879.
