Life in Richmond, Texas
The city of Richmond is the seat of Fort Bend County in the U.S. state of Texas within the Houston–Sugar Land–Baytown metropolitan area. Richmond city boundaries are joined on one hand with Sugar Land and with the city of Rosenberg on the other side. Even though it is the county seat, thus containing most of the local government offices, it actually is one of the smaller cities in the area. Adjacent Sugar Land is the largest city in the county. Texas pioneers settled near the Brazos River. In the years since, the Ranch has passed through four generations and grown into one of Fort Bend County’s landmarks. Today, the George Ranch is a 23,000-acre working ranch. Richmond, Texas is a growing community that offers so much in the way of family, schools, history, recreation, and entertainment.
