That old Richwood High School is gone, and no one can bring it back, but most people, of a certain age, are familiar with RHS and the old Cherry River is still a swift-flowing river at times.The Cherry River watershed has experienced severe floods, including ones in 1932, 1954, mid-1960's, 1980's, July 2001, two events in November 2003 and most recently in March 2007. In the November 2003 flooding events over 370 residences, 25 businesses, three schools, a nursing home, the Richwood Area Community Hospital, and city water and sewer lines were destroyed or severely damaged.
