    Town of Randolph
     
    Located fifteen miles south of Boston, at the intersection of Routes 128 and 24, Randolph's location has been an important factor in its economic and social history.
     
    At the time of Randolph's incorporation in 1793, local farmers were making shoes and boots to augment household incomes from subsistence farming.  In the next half century, this sideline had become the town's major industry, attracting workers from across New England, Canada and Ireland and later from Italy and Eastern Europe, each adding to the quality of life in the town.  By 1850 Randolph had become one of the nation's leading boot producers, shipping boots as far away as California and Australia.
     
    The decline of the shoe industry at the beginning of the twentieth century led to Randolph's evolution as a suburban residential community.  Boot and shoe making has been supplanted by light manufacturing and service industries.  The town's proximity to major transportation networks has resulted in an influx of families from Boston and other localities who live in Randolph but work throughout the metropolitan area.
     
    Today, as Randolph enters the new millennium, the community feels itself to be one of the most culturally diverse municipalities on the South Shore.  Working together to meet the challenges of a changing society and economy, town residents celebrate their unique heritage and strive to build for a future in which all can take pride.
