Historic New Richmond

The picturesque Village of New Richmond is located on the Ohio River in southern Clermont County. The village is known for its warm hospitality and various community festivals hosted each year to celebrate local culture, art, music and history including the RiverDays Festival with its one-of-a-kind Cardboard Boat Regatta. New Richmond was founded in 1814 and became a thriving commercial center on the river in the 19th century when steamboats were helping to open the West. The village also played a very important role in the abolitionist/underground railroad movement. While visiting New Richmond, visitors can also experience three nationally recognized historical sites: the Ross Gowdy House Museum, the world’s only Cardboard Boat Museum and the Birthplace of President US Grant.
