Richfield is a city in Hennepin County, United States. An inner-ring suburb of the Minneapolis–Saint Paul region, it is bordered by Minneapolis to the north, Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport to the east, Bloomington to the south, Edina to the west. Best Buy, the U. S.'s largest electronics retailer, has its headquarters in Richfield. The population was 35,228 at the 2010 census; the beginnings of Richfield date back to the 1850s. Close to Minneapolis and Fort Snelling, it was on the edge of a growing and expanding city with business and commerce not far away. One of the first settlers was Riley Bartholomew, a former General in the Ohio Militia who became a Richfield Justice of the Peace and a Minnesota State Senator. Bartholomew built a house on the east shore of Wood Lake in 1852, the restored Riley Lucas Bartholomew House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, the site are maintained by the Richfield Historical Society. In the early days, Richfield extended as far north as Lake Street, included present day Edina and parts of St. Louis Park and Hopkins on the west, extended to the Mississippi and the Minnesota Rivers on the east, to Bloomington on the south.
On May 11, 1858, as Congress was admitting Minnesota into the Union, the early residents of Richfield had their first town meeting. That same year Richfield was named for the fertile farm land it encompassed. By 1879, the community's first town hall was constructed. Early residents were German and families from the New England area; these residents were soon joined by immigrants from Sweden and Denmark. It was not until 1908. From 1908 until 1950, Richfield's local government consisted of a President, three trustees, a clerk. On November 7, 1950, residents voted for a city manager form of government, meaning the city had a Mayor, four council members, one City Manager; this is still the form of government used today. Richfield's first Mayor was Clarence Christian, who began serving in 1951, but served as President under the old format dating back to 1948. By the late 1940s, the city's population started increasing as farmland was sold to developers who were building homes for veterans returning from World War II.
In 1955, the Richfield Chamber of Commerce was formed and has been involved in the development, as well as the redevelopment, of the community since that time. The first half of the 20th century saw the boundaries of Richfield change, as annexations decreased the size of the city. Three annexations by Minneapolis brought the village to its present north boundary. In 1886, St. Louis Park formed a separate community followed by Edina in 1888 and a section of the far west was annexed by Hopkins in 1893. In 1905, a section of the east to 34th Avenue was requisitioned by Fort Snelling. In 1941, another section of East Richfield went to the Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport, by 1955 all of the Wold-Chamberlain Field was separated from the village. Over the years, populations of all nearby communities increased and after World War II, Richfield flourished with commuters to Twin Cities jobs. Today, Richfield has a population of about 35,000 residents who live within seven square miles of neighborhoods and shops.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 7.01 square miles, of which 6.87 square miles is land and 0.14 square miles is water.

The Richfield Rediscovered Housing Program has established an environment of change in the community as it encourages home remodeling and reconstruction; the program is changing the face of Richfield's residential neighborhoods, upgrading them from small, post-WWII styles to larger homes.
