Richland is on Farm Road 514 seven miles northwest of Emory in northern Rains County. It was first settled around the time of the Civil War. In the mid-1930s the settlement had a church, a store, and a number of scattered dwellings. After World War II the store closed, and in 1990 only a cemetery and a few houses remained. That year the reported population was 100. The population remained the same in 2000.
