Artifacts from life in and around Randolph are exhibited in rooms on the first floor. Displays include: an old-fashioned schoolroom; home life; local industry; farming; an underground “mine” from the 1800s; as well as, the Mt. Freedom resort era, when Randolph was a vacation haven from the early 20th Century through the early 1970s.
