| About Our Township
Richmond Township was formed in 1824 after splitting from Covington
Township. Many surrounding townships were originally a part of
Covington Township. Historical information can be found in the County
Atlas of Tioga County Pennsylvania 1875 by John L. Sexton, Jr. and it is
worth a search on the web to find out more about our community.
2010 Census reports Richmond's population at 2396 people.
Richmond Township is made up of 50.8 square miles and totally
surrounds the Borough of Mansfield. Our road system includes about
60 miles of roads, most of them being dirt roads.
