Brief History

Randolph is a town in Orange County, Vermont. The population was 4,778 at the 2010 census, making Randolph the largest town in the county.

Vermont granted the town on November 2, 1780, when the New Hampshire settlers could not locate the original grantees, whose patents were issued by New York. It was chartered on June 29, 1781 to Aaron Storrs and 70 others, and was originally named "Middlesex."

To encourage recognition of the state by the United States for admission into the Union, the town was renamed in honor of Edmund Randolph who was one of Virginia's delegates to the Constitutional Congress.   [1]  [2]
