The municipality’s name honors Charles Lennox, who was Governor General of the colony and the fourth Duke of Richmond at the time. In the mid-19th century, Richmond was home to St. Francis Academy, which was founded by Alexander Lucius Twilight, who was the first African-American to obtain a university degree, and who also taught there. Richmond is also known for its local slate and brick production.
