Randolph, Vermont, USA - 1849 Randolph
Orange County. Randolph is watered by the second and third branch of White River; the former running through the eastern, and the latter through the western part of the town. These streams and their tributaries afford a number of advantageous situations for mills. The timber is, principally, maple, beech, and birch, with some hemlock, and spruce. The surface of Randolph is considerably elevated, but is less broken than that of the towns generally in this vicinity. The soil is productive, and the farming interest extensive.
There are here three pleasant villages ; one in the centre of the town, another in the eastern, and the other in the western part. The Centre Village is very handsomely situated on elevated ground. These villages are places of considerable business and some manufactures.
The West Randolph Academy was incorporated in 1847.
Boundaries. North by Brookfield, east by Tunbridge, south by Bethel and west by Braintree.
