Known as “The City Beautiful”, New Richmond is located about 40 miles east of St. Paul on the Willow River. Many residents work in the Twin Cities or its surrounding suburbs, but escape to Wisconsin for New Richmond’s small town setting with big city services. New Richmond boasts one of the finest 18-hole golf courses in the state. Residents also enjoy bike and walking trails, a full-service community center and more than 20 city parks.
Visit the News’ web site anytime for breaking news, sports results, event and shopping information. Depending on what’s “hot” in the community, the site averages at least 5,000 unique visitors each week.
