Richfield, the county seat of Sevier County, Utah is a diverse rural area which relies on agricultural as well as industrial and retail businesses. It is almost exactly the halfway point between Denver and Los Angeles, and because of that, it is a stopping place for many travelers. The settlement was abandoned in 1867, along with many other early Mormon settlements, during the Black Hawk War. In 1871, when it resettled, Richfield began serving as a regional center, and with the 1891 arrival of the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad, a small boom was created by the expansion of mining, and agriculture.
