However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Richland, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Richland. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.3065, Longitude: -86.9394     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Richland have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
