Richfield Historical Park is owned and managed by the Richfield Historical Society. Currently, the Historical Society is working hard to build a restoration fund to get the historic Messer / Mayer Mill grinding again. Click here to learn more about the Mill's history and the restoration project.
This a fabulous property -- scenic, serene, and beautiful, with numerous historical buildings and markers. One road winds through the park, so it's impossible to miss any of the stops documented on this post.
