Richmond (pronounced /ˈrɪtʃmənd/) is a city largely within Wayne Township, Wayne County, in east central Indiana, which borders Ohio. The city also includes the Richmond Municipal Airport, which is in Boston Township and separated from the rest of the city. It is sometimes called the "cradle of recorded jazz" because some early jazz records were made here at the studio of Gennett Records, a division of the Starr Piano Company.
Richmond is the county seat of Wayne County. The city's 2000 population was 39,124.
