Richmond Hill is an unincorporated community in northern Yadkin County, North Carolina, United States, along the Yadkin River. The community is on the Yadkin County side of the river between the Surry County communities of Rockford and Siloam. It is located in the Boonville ZIP code area (27011).
The community of Richmond Hill is named for the residence of the same name of Richmond Mumford Pearson, former Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court. Pearson established a law school in his home at Richmond Hill in 1848, which was conveniently near Rockford, then the county seat of a then combined Surry and Yadkin counties. The brick home of Pearson, built in 1861, was fully restored in the 1970s and is the centerpiece of the 30-acre (120,000 m2) Richmond Hill Law School & Nature Park.
Richmond Hill Baptist, established in 1889, is also in the community.
