- Richland, South Dakota
In 1861, the community was founded by and named after Milton M. Rich of
Chicago. Mr. Rich was reported to have dreamed of building a community below the bluffs. However, it was also reported that Mr. Rich disagreed with railroad officials on how to divide the site of the town. The dispute was never resolved; and as a result, the railroad was deflected to Sioux City, Iowaafter reaching Le Mars, Iowa.
