Here is an introduction to Richland’s cities, towns and villages: touring landmark sites, meeting the people who impacted our timeline, and understanding events that shaped our community.

  1. Timothy…how can you be reached via e-mail? I have family from Butler going back to the 1850’s and I enjoy your blog.


    • What an awesome site. Grew up in Mansfield, but have been away for almost 40 years. A great way to get reaquainted with forgotten/unknown history!

      Loved the article on the BSA Klondike Derby! It brought back memories.

      I was in troop 111 (and 113). Which troop were you in? Were you on the Aquatic Staff at Avery Hand? 1978 or 1979?
