RICHLAND, TEXAS (Rains County). Richland is on Farm Road 514 seven miles northwest of Emory in northern Rains County. It was first settled around the time of the Civil War. In the mid-1930s the settlement had a church, a store, and a number of scattered dwellings. After World War II the store closed, and in 1990 only a cemetery and a few houses remained. That year the reported population was 100. The population remained the same in 2000.
