About Us


How We're Helping

We are a 501c3 non-profit organization focused on preserving the history of Randolph County and bringing the museum back to life. With the help of our board of directors and volunteers,  we are working to revitalize our exhibits to keep them relevant, to raise much needed funds to rehabilitate the building, to protect our collection of genealogical resources, and to ensure the museum's place in Randolph County for future generations.


How You Can Help

Are you passionate about history? Do you love digging through the stacks doing genealogical research to learn more about your roots? Become a member of the society or volunteer at the museum. We can always use an extra set of hands! Whatever your skills, you can help the RCHS. Contact us for more information about how you can be a part of preserving our history or see our membership page to join our team. 


Thank You

Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you. 

Donate Now

The Randolph County Historical and Genealogical Society depends on memberships and donations to work towards our mission. The museum is staffed by volunteers who perform research look-ups, maintain the collection, and rotate displays. Your donation helps us keep our doors open and our history alive.
