Richmond was founded in 1798 by Colonel John Miller, a hero of the American Revolution and the city became the county seat of the newly formed Madison County that same year. The city stole the county seat from nearby Milford, which was the previous county seat, and residents were so upset that they challenged Richmond to a duel.
