East Randolph is a hamlet, census-designated place, and former village in Cattaraugus County, New York, United States. The population was 620 at the 2010 census.[1] East Randolph is adjacent to the northeast part of the former village of Randolph and is mostly within the town of Randolph, with a small part inside the town of Conewango.

History[edit]

The first business opened in 1826, and a post office was opened in 1850.

The village of East Randolph was incorporated in 1881. On March 16, 2010, referenda were held in both the village of Randolph and East Randolph to dissolve each entity into a hamlet within the town of Randolph (with the northernmost portion of East Randolph being absorbed by the town of Conewango). Both referenda passed; as such, the village of East Randolph ceased to exist after December 31, 2011.[2] At the time of the village's dissolution, the mayor was current Cattaraugus County legislator Howard Van Rensselaer.
