History & Heritage

The Randolph County Historic Landmark Preservation Commission was created in 2008 to recognize buildings, places, sites and objects deemed important to the understanding of local history. To date, 20 landmarks and 22 cultural heritage sites and objects have been designated. In addition, 21 sites have been recorded on the National Register of Historic Places by the National Park Service, and four of those are also local landmarks.

Visitors must be aware that, whether designated by national, state, Randolph County or municipal governments, landmarks and cultural history sites are often privately owned and are not normally open to the public.
