1965 City Directory for Richmond, Indiana

Following are links to the 1965 City Directory for my hometown, Richmond, Indiana. You may search the index by street or last name of residents who lived there in 1965.

The links will open a book “chapter” which will let you “flip” through the pages.  When you get to the page you want you can use the “magnifying glass” symbol to enlarge or decrease the size of the text.  With the text enlarged you will need to “left click and drag” on the page to move around to different parts of it.

If the “page flip” book does not work properly or seems to be missing pages you can download the original PDF file by clicking on the link near the bottom left of the page.

This is an excellent way to find old friends, neighbors, and family members from long ago.  I urge you to support your local libraries with donations to help support all the volunteers and efforts that make genealogy searches so easy for us all.

Scanning these pages was a lot of work but certainly worth it.  Have Fun!

    I’m not from your area but I must stop and say this sounds like quite an ambitious and generous project. Bravo!

      Hi Jamie…. indeed a few of us Richmondites like to stroll down memory lane more often than is probably healthy. We have a webpage on facebook where we gather and reminisce about the “good old days.” Not that today won’t eventually become a good ole day by any means, but strolling through this old city directory by address brings up the names of our old neighbors and people who played significant roles in our early lives….. I’ve been writing poetry all of my life, and one of the first few poems that I wrote to launch this blog in 2011 was “Mrs. Russell,” a very kind neighbor who I fell in love with at the age of three and kept a relationship with for several years. Seeing her name in this city directory is like a breath of fresh, cold air slowly passing through my soul…. The year this directory was published I was 5 years old and can tell you that most days during that year you could have found me over at her house having tea and crumpets, or visiting her hero husband’s grave, or dining with her at the Holiday Inn Restaurant where she worked, or crunching on her delicious rhubarb, or pretending to love her crabapple jelly! I don’t live in the past but I certainly respect and admire it…. And I dearly love Mrs. Russell and all those others who played such a significant role in my childhood so many years ago… Thanks for stopping by Jamie. It’s always such a pleasure chatting with you….

    They must have these for other towns, too, don’t you think?
