RICHLAND, TX (HOPKINS COUNTY)
RICHLAND, TEXAS (Hopkins County). Richland was on Farm Road 69 near the banks of Richland Creek six miles east of Sulphur Springs in east central Hopkins County. The small community was centered around a Baptist Church organized in a brush arbor in 1869 with eighteen members. A public school was operating after the turn of the century and in 1905 had an enrollment of ninety-six. In 1948 the community had the Baptist church, a cemetery, a store, a school, and a few scattered houses. The store later closed, and by 1952 the school had been consolidated with the Sulphur Springs school district. In the late 1980s only the church and cemetery still remained.
