Richfield history:

At the beginning of 1864, Albert Lewis brought a group of ten men from Sanpete into the area of Richfield. They felt it was a good place to settle with good water and soil along with wood in nearby hills. They built a shelter in the ground which they called, "The Hole in the Ground." The rest of that winter was spent in their "hole" while they prepared and planned to bring their families back in the spring.
