Richburg Village Court

Richburg Village Court is located on Main Street in the town of Richburg, New York. The town of Richburg is located in Allegany County, New York.

Richburg is village located in Allegany County in New York, United States. The village is found within the boundaries of towns Bolivar and Wirt and is a community east that of Olean. The village was incorporated in 1881 and for a time, was a ‘boom town’ for petroleum.

During the early days of oil boom, there was much enthusiasm in Richburg village over the prospects of an oil and gas field to open in the town of Allen. A Richburg oil field opened in the village which was the first ever commercial well located in the Richburg district. Though it was the first commercial well in the district, it wasn’t the first commercial well in the county of Allegany.

Richburg’s oil field is located about a mile east of the village. When the well first opened, it began to flow around 300 barrels of oil every day and there seems to a real boom that was quickly underway to the Richburg oil field. After a few months of little farming settlement in the village, there came already 8000 residents with two railroads and two banks as well as a morning and evening newspaper in town.

In only after a few months, the Richburg village is already as lively as that of mining camps. The boom of Richburg lasted only a year. This is because of the renowned Cherry Creek gusher which came down the Warren County, Pa. This caused a big slump in the oil industry so the population of Richburg gradually drifted to Cherry Grove Field which is more promising market.

A notable facility in Richburg includes the Elementary Campus of Bolivar-Richburg Central School District. The Elementary Campus houses students from grades K to 5. The school is known to provide really high quality education to all of its students.

It is not uncommon for an individual to attempt to defend a traffic violation by themselves without knowing the procedure and customs of the local court system. However, oftentimes a person who represents themselves risks missing important deadlines, notices, and court proceedings because they are not familiar with the court rules and legal documents involved in any given case. Without an understanding of local courtroom rules and customs, people that choose to represent themselves, due to their lack of knowledge of these rules and customs, often, unintentionally offend a judge or district attorney.
