The Village of Richmond Hill was officially incorporated on June 18, 1872 as a village and the first council meeting was held on January 1, 1873 under the leadership of Abraham Law as Reeve. Richmond Hill developed because of its proximity to Toronto, as farmers came into town on their way to Toronto markets and people travelled up and down Yonge Street to and from communities further north.

Richmond Hill continues to be one of Canada’s fastest growing municipalities. Over the years, the Village of Richmond Hill has remained a distinctive community, one of change yet with strong historical roots. Even during these times of extensive growth, the Village of Richmond Hill has managed to remain a friendly, down-to-earth community.
