Richland was named by promoters hoping to attract settlers to the region. (from Cheney's Names on the Face of Montana, Mountain Press Publishing Company) Richland is located near the Canadian border in northeastern Montana. It is along the west fork of the Poplar River and is just north of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation.
The nearby town of Scobey has a great nine-hole golf course. Daniels County Museum and Pioneer Town, on 20 acres just west of Scobey, boasts 35 buildings that have been restored to depict a town in the early 1900s. Held the last weekend in June are Pioneer Days with entertainment featuring the Dirty Shame Show, five family oriented internationally known variety shows starring the Dirty Shame Belles and the Dixieland Band.
