Twenty miles south of beautiful Savannah, Georgia, is the family-oriented community of Richmond Hill. Bordered by the scenic Ogeechee River, this town of more than 10,000 residents is one of the nation’s fastest growing areas. Richmond Hill has great public schools, a rich history of Henry Ford’s philanthropic contributions to the county, many parks and outdoor recreation opportunities, and lots of fishing and great seafood. With its reduced crime rate, community events such as the annual Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival, lots of southern charm and relief from city congestion, Richmond Hill is a great place to raise a family.
