Rich Valley Township was established in April, 1858. The first settlers came from Pennsylvania and Virginia and other states in the East, and they were largely of English origin. Around 1876 migration to the township was mostly from Bohemia with a few immigrants from Germany, Ireland, Poland and Denmark.
