History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Randolph was the first location settled within the town, around 1820.

The Village of Randolph was incorporated in 1867. Voters in the village approved the dissolution of the village into a hamlet within the town of Randolph on March 16, 2010, becoming one of four villages in the county to have approved a village dissolution plan within a six month span. East Randolph and Perrysburg approved their dissolution plans on the same day; Limestone had done so in September 2009. At the time of dissolution, Howard MacLaughlin was mayor.

Randolph was once the home of the Chamberlain Institute and Female College, a Methodist school, which closed after a fire. The site of the Chamberlain Institute is now the home of Randolph High School.

The Randolph Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.
