When Lieutenant-Governor John Graves Simcoe first surveyed the area in 1794, the core of Richmond Hill, Yonge St., was envisioned as a military road, to serve as an inland connection between York and Fort Penetanguishene. Despite its initial conception as a military route, Yonge Street's opportunities for settlement were inevitable.
William Berczy came from Genesee New York in 1794 and brought a group of settlers with him; the group was granted 64,000 acres of land in Markham Township.

Richmond Hill is one of Canada's fastest growing communities.
Situated in the York Region of the Greater Toronto Area, it has a large multicultural population which is expected to exceed 200,000 by the year 2015.
Popular history cites the name Richmond Hill may have come from the Duke of Richmond visiting the area, however the family of Benjamin Barnard believed the name came about when their father taught his school classes to sing "The Lass of Richmond Hill", a song from his childhood upbringing in Richmond, Surrey.
Richmond Hill's town motto is "En la rose, je fleuris" (French for "Like the rose, I flourish), reflecting perhaps the motto of the Duke of Richmond or the fact the town was a rose-growing centre in the early 1900's - at the time the town was known as the Rose Capital of Canada.
