Welcome to Randolph
Small-town vibrancy with an abundance of natural beauty
Situated in the center of prestigious Morris County, Randolph is a scenic oasis brimming with natural beauty and wildlife. Randolph was originally a popular summer retreat among the city dwellers of New York and Newark, who flocked to fill the town’s hotels and bungalows in the early part of the 20th century. Its high elevation and cooler temperatures made it a summer haven until the availability of cheap airfare and the opening of the New York Thruway and Garden State Parkway offered easy access to the New Jersey shore, the Catskills, and other resort areas that were once too far away.
Today, Randolph is known for the highly desirable quality of life it offers residents of all ages, who enjoy its family-oriented environment, excellent schools, beautiful parks, and recreation opportunities. Sixteen miles of trails winding throughout the preserved woodlands and fields of Randolph connect the town’s parks, schools, and neighborhoods.
Randolph encompasses suburban single-family homes in a mix of Cape Cod, split-level, ranch, and Colonial styles.
