Richland, MI

Richland is a quaint village with a population of 791 in Southwest Michigan. The village was one of the first areas settled in Kalamazoo County and is located in the middle of what was once the Gull Prairie. Richland is named for its fertile soil. Some fun things to do in the village are the Richland Community Center Trails, Gull Meadow Farms, Gull Lake, and Gull Lake Marine.
