Adding Richland to Our Gazetteer ...

As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.

We originally found mention of Richland in both the FIPS-55 and the GNIS. For more information, see the FIPS and GNIS Codes sections on our Miscellaneous Page.

In addition, we also found mention of Richland elsewhere: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).

For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Richland on our Genealogy Page.

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Mississippi's counties, including Holmes, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Richland - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Richland) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Richland. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Richland

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Richland. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.9742, Longitude: -89.9863
