This town originated as a part of Braintree and became its own in 1793. It was named for Peyton Randolph, a Virginia patriot that became the first president of the Continental Congress. With two thirds of its residents working on shoes and boots, Randolph became known for the footwear industry. This went well into the 1900s until the Randolph manufacturing company known as “Randy’s” shut down. This was due to growth as a more suburban residential community. In the 1950s, Randolph’s close proximity to rails, going to both Boston and the rest of New England brought about a rise in families relocating from the city. This is why there are many ranch and raised ranch style homes starting from the 50s and 60s. Now, Randolph is filled with different types of homes and businesses both industrial and commercial.
