On March 14, 1870 the first pineers arrived
to establish a settlement in Bear River Valley.
The townsite was surveyed in the summer
of 1870 and named in honor of Randolph
H. Stewart, the first bishop. Heavy snows,
early frosts and Indian troubles taxed the
colonists endurance. The first meeting house
in Randolph was a small log building
which was used for a school and all public
meetings. This spot was an early camp
site of the pioneers.
