The mountain itself consists not of basalt but of tuff: a porous rock formed when volcanic ash gradually hardened over two million years ago.

Mount Richmond was named after Richmond Henty, one of the first European children born in the Portland area. The national park was established in 1960, as a result of the dedication of local naturalists such as Noel Learmonth and Cliff Beauglehole.
