Ritchie is an unincorporated community in southern Will County, Illinois, United States. It is located along Forked Creek and Illinois Route 102, 3 miles southeast of the city of Wilmington in Wesley Township.

Ritchie is home to several dozen houses, the Wesley Township hall, a church, and a grain elevator. A railroad track passing through the community was dismantled in the 1990s, but the bridge that carried it over Forked Creek and Route 102 still remains.
