Richmond is a small, rural community in western Massachusetts, abutting the New York State border and just south of the city of Pittsfield, where many of its residents work.

Richmond is 14 miles north of Great Barrington and 145 miles west of Boston. It is noted for its scenic beauty, with tree-lined roads and shadows cast across the many fields by the surrounding Berkshire hills.

The town is principally residential in nature, with only a handful of commercial enterprises and several orchards and farms. There are many part-time residents of Richmond from New York City or the Boston area involved in business or the arts who have chosen Richmond as their second homes for its beauty and privacy. They, along with the year round residents of Richmond, express a strong sense of community.
