122 123 bhgrecollection.com | | THE DISTINCTIVE LIFE® Volume �� Richmond was founded in 1837 along a bend in the Brazos River by members of the “Old Three Hundred,” the first settlers to receive land grants in Stephen F. Austin’s original colony. The seat of Fort Bend County, Richmond is infused with history, from the George Park Historical Ranch to a thriving downtown filled with historic buildings and significant landmarks. Today, more than 14,000 citizens reside in Richmond, enjoying a high quality of life less than an hour from downtown Houston and other major destinations via the Westpark Tollway, Grand Parkway, U.S. 59 South and other major thoroughfares. To say that the homes in Richmond are historic is an understatement, the neighborhoods exude the rich history that makes up this beautiful city. Richmond is home to some of the most successful and established master-planned communities in the Houston region, including Pecan Grove Plantation, opened in 1977. Newer and stillactive communities include Long Meadow Farms and Sweetgrass – the latter designed for residents ages 55 and up.
