Historic RichmondNeighborhood Information


The Historic Richmond, Indiana Depot District is experiencing a renaissance as local business owners have come together to revitalize this four-block area that was a bustling center of commerce in the late 19th century and the first part of the 20th century. This up-and-coming neighborhood, named after its most prominent landmark, the Pennsylvania Railroad Station, now features an array of unique shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. The Historic Richmond Depot District offers a refreshing change from the sameness of big chain stores and restaurants.


Business owners in the Historic Richmond Depot District are working together and reaching out to the local community by hosting several free events each year such as the Old Fashioned Christmas Festival, Fall Festival, and Independence Day Festival. Click on the Festivals link for more details.
