MOND HILL

WELCOME TO RICHMOND HILL ! As Mayor of one of Georgia ’ s fastest growing cities , I enjoy being able to share with new citizens all of the things that make Richmond Hill special . We are proud to have a long and storied history , but we are moving with excitement towards the future of making our city one of the most connected , vibrant communities in the Southeast !
Richmond Hill was settled in 1734 , a year after Oglethorpe founded the Georgia colony of Savannah . Our community also has a historical connection to industrialist Henry Ford , who chose this area as his winter home after just one visit . Today , visitors to our fair town are impressed by “ The Hill ’ s ” southern charm , the peaceful atmosphere , eclectic boutiques , and delicious restaurants !
As a lifelong resident , I have been so fortunate to live my entire life in this community . Our city has been blessed each year by the new people who have decided to move to Richmond Hill and contribute to the diverse fabric of warmth and friendship that makes our city so special .

See you in The Hill !
