Centennial Celebration, 1917-2017

The Village of Claribel, later known as the City of Richmond Heights, was incorporated in 1917. Through quality leadership and community togetherness, the now City has maintained a superb suburban lifestyle for all residents to enjoy; united, we enjoy top-notch safety and Fire/EMS services, family-friendly recreational programming and a beautiful community that offers everything from a spacious tree-lined park to our City's pool and Kiwanis Lodge. 2017 marks 100 years of vibrant history in Richmond Heights.
