RICHVALE History: Richmond Hill was unique in regional government, as it was the only municipality that enlarged into four areas: " King, Vaughan, Markham and Whitchurch. Other small settlements including Carrville, Headford, Elgin Mills, Jefferson, Bond Lake and Temperanceville become part of Richmond Hill in 1970s, as well as the large communities of Lake Wilcox and Oak Ridges in the north and Richvale in the south.
North Richvale is bounded by Carville Road to the south, Major MacKenzie Drive to the north, Yonge Street to the east and Bathurst Street to the west, which makes North Richvale and South Richvale unique in classification..
The coming of the automobile stimulated another wave of development on Yonge Street in early 1900s.
Strips of homes sitting on 5 acre lots began appearing along the Highway Seven south of town in 1910. That year the Maclean farm was transformed into subdivision on the westside of the road, between Langstaff and Carrville roads which merged the community of Richvale.
Many of Richvale's residents drove to work and back in Toronto each day.
Growth was slow because of lack of public utilities, but gradually Richvale began to develope.
In 1980,s some developments started with supplies of mechanism and connections with sewers and septic system in Richvale.
One of the main attractions of the Richvale new Community center was the outdoor pool with a ten-foot- high and a three- foot -high springboard, and St. Charles Garnier Elementary school was next to the Community Centre and pool.
