SEEING IS BELIEVING IN BUENA VISTA
Did you know that Buena Vista in Spanish means “Good Vision?” The early settlers of the area were attracted to the very things we find valuable today. Nutrient rich sandy soil — perfect for growing vegetables, cranberries, and blueberries. The namesake Richland is synonymous with its abundant fertile soil. The sandy soil was, and still is today, the major element needed to produce glass. Mining operations and glass manufacturing are still at the heart of Buena Vista Township’s economy. Glass manufacturing companies Comar and Wilmad Glass continue to prosper, and are major local employers.

A BIT ECLECTIC
Buena Vista Township includes many diverse and unincorporated communities. The western most area is Buena. The southern most — south of Route 40 are: East Vineland and Milmay. Richland parallels Route 40 (aka Harding Highway). New Kuban, Newtonville, Lake Ann, and Collings Lakes are more to the north. Originally, the body of water collectively known as Collings Lakes were cranberry bogs. A small community in the 1950’s developed around the agricultural operations there. Eventually the cranberry business waned and ultimately ceased — but the Collings Lakes community continued to grow. Today, Collings Lakes has the greatest population concentration in Buena Vista. Many homes enjoy gorgeous lake vistas. Interestingly enough — there is no street referencing cranberries. I guess the developers didn’t want to get “bogged” down with too many details!
