Top Definition
Richmond, Fort Bend County, Texas. A suburb city about 25 miles southwest of downtown Houston. One of the fastest growing and most diverse counties in the nation. Though Richmond is the county seat (home to the county government and courthouse), it is not the largest city in Fort Bend (that title is held by Sugar Land).

Richmond was once known for its rural atmosphere and miles of undeveloped land with large oak and pecan trees, but this is slowly changing with the growth explosion in Sugar Land and Fort Bend County.

Richmond is situated next to Sugar Land, and likewise, has an affluent population in its eastern section that borders Sugar Land. Some specific, affluent subdivisions include Aliana, Old Orchard, Shiloh Lake Estates, Pecan Grove Plantation, Bridlewood Estates, and parts of Greatwood. This growth is a recent development and is basically due to Sugar Land running out of room to build new affluent communities, so the building is instead happening in Richmond (to the northwest) and Missouri City (to the east).

Richmond is also home to the exclusive Houstonian and Shadow Hawk Country Club and golf course, and George Ranch Historical Park.

Schools: Much of Richmond is in Lamar CISD. But some of the eastern portion is zoned to Fort Bend ISD (FBISD) and attends schools in neighboring Sugar Land.
