Living in Richmond

Earlham is located in Richmond, Indiana—and our hometown has a lot to offer. Whether you’re looking for a place with great food, arts and culture, or greenspace and outdoor activities, Richmond (and the rest of Wayne County) is a wonderful place to call home.

Richmond is also conveniently located between several metropolitan areas, including Dayton, Indianapolis and Cincinnati—so if you’re looking to live in a bigger city, commuting can also be an option.
