Randolph township in the original survey of the Western Reserve was known as number 1 in the 8th range. Townships were numbered in tiers from the Pennsylvania border and from south to north. The southern boundary being the southern boundary of the Western Reserve. The survey of Randolph and adjoining townships was completed in 1797. Due to error in the survey Randolph Township is larger than the proposed size of townships, thus giving it the distinction of being the largest township in Portage County. Randolph Township is on the southern end of Breakneck Creek a feeder that supplies the Cuyahoga River, meeting it in Franklin Township. Breakneck Creek supplied the power that helped Randolph grow in its early years.
Randolph is also the home of the popular, well known, Portage County Randolph Fair. This is a short history devoted to the final chapter of Randolph's Heritage Festival. From 1994-2005, a group of Randolph residents and others organized and presented a wonderful small town festival on the last weekend in September at the Randolph Fairgrounds,
The festival was started by the Randolph Historical Society and for the first few years it rained every other year. It had ups and downs due to the weather, but every year it became better, having new displays, entertainment, community involvement and an atmosphere that was conducive to a fun day celebrating the heritage of Randolph.
After the first few years, the Heritage Festival became independent from the historical society and went to a two-day festival for the purpose of expanding the base of the festival committee organizers and promote expansion with a craft show, a car show and other entertainment.
Through all the years of the festival, the committee was committed to returning the proceeds back to the community and followed through with their commitment. Giving to numerous Waterloo community needs including Waterloo Schools for gym supplies, students attending Maplewood Career Center in Ravenna and numerous other projects. The festival committee, through those 11 years attracted a pleasant mix of people with diverse opinions and abilities. That is the life of the festival, people using their talents and sharing them with the community to create great days of fun and entertainment.
