The Richmond LDS Ward was organized in the spring of 1860. An additional chapel was built in 1917. The Benson Stake Tabernacle, erected in 1903, was condemned in 1962 following an earthquake, and a new Benson Stake Center was built and dedicated in 1964. The stake center serves seven wards in Lewiston, Cove, Cornish, Trenton, and Richmond. Richmond now has five LDS wards.

Richmond had a growth of around 1,000 people from 1940 to 1970. A period of growth began in the 1970s, and according to the 1990 census the population was 1,955.
