Welcome to Our Website!

Welcome to Randolph, a traditional, small town community located about an hour north of Madison, bound by two counties, Dodge and Columbia and within 5 miles of fishing and recreational lakes, which include Beaver Dam Lake and Fox Lake.   

The village has a strong agricultural economic support from the many farmers in the area.  It is proud of that heritage.

Randolph offers peaceful residential neighborhoods, quality schools (public and parochial), a variety of churches and recreational opportunities, with a beautiful park and a pool.

Randolph features a book and gift store, a resale  store, a print shop,  plumbing, heating and electrical shop, auto mechanics, gas and convenience stores, a large grocery store, beauty salons, a tanning salon, and more.  There are home based businesses such as embroidery, screen printing and quilting. 

Randolph is proud to have two banks, a telephone and cable TV company, a pharmacy, a medical clinic, a chiropractic office, veterinarians, a dental office, several insurance agencies, law offices, car dealers, nursing home, residential care apartments, day care services, restaurants and eateries.

Our largest employer is Jung Garden Center.  They have been in Randolph for over 100 years.

Randolph’s economic development committee is here to meet the needs of existing business and industries, and can accommodate and provide financial incentives for new industries seeking to relocate or expand in its growing business park.

The Friends of the Hutchinson Memorial Library are having another fundraiser to raise money for building repairs to our beautiful old Library. We are having a silent auction and used book sale. Mark your calendars, the sale will take place:

Thursday May 7th from 5 - 8 p.m.
Friday May 8th from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Saturday May 9th from 9 a.m. - noon

In previous years we have raised enough money to replace the roof, replaced plaster and painted. Worn carpet and drafty windows are next on our list. By starting earlier and working harder to acquire more donations this year, we hope to make enough to get the job done. We are currently accepting donations of used books and new items for the auction. Of course cash donations are always accepted.
