Inscription.  The Randolph School was first established in the late 1840s - early 1850s, with an enrollment of twenty~five students under the tutelage of Mr. Charlie Rodgers. After moving to this location during the 1920s, the campus was expanded in the 1930s and 1940s, adding teacher housing, a gymnasium, cafeteria, and a vocational and agricultural building. Consolidating with several schools in 1935, the school began serving grades one through twelve and became known as Randolph High School. Randolph High School closed in 1972.
