History[edit]

The earliest known inhabitants of what is now Randolph were the Lenni Lenape Native Americans. The earliest European settlers of what is now Randolph were Quakers and one of the pioneering landowners was Hartshorne Fitz-Randolph, who purchased 1,000 acres (4.0 km2) of what would become the township in the Mine Hill area in 1753, later becoming the namesake of the Township.[19] New Jersey’s first iron mine was established in Randolph in 1713, and for hundreds of years the mines fostered the development of the township, providing the raw materials for weapons used by the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War.[19] During the war, the area was a supply point for George Washington's army during their winter encampment in nearby Jockey Hollow.[19]

Randolph was incorporated as a township by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on January 1, 1806, from portions of Mendham Township. Portions of the township were taken on April 1, 1869, to create Dover Town within the township, which became an independent municipality in 1896. Other portions of the township were taken to create Port Oram (June 26, 1895, now Wharton), Mine Hill Township (March 2, 1923) and Victory Gardens (June 20, 1951).[3]

There are several sections of Randolph, including Mount Freedom, Center Grove, Fernbrook, Ironia, and Shongum.

Randolph became a vacation haven in the early part of the 20th century, known for its woods, ponds, lakes and air. Through the 1950s, farms, large hotels and bungalow colonies dotted the community. Performers such as Phil Silvers, and Frank Sinatra appeared at the hotels.[34] Boxers Max Baer, Floyd Patterson, James J. Braddock and Rocky Marciano trained or fought at the Saltz Hotel.[34]

Landmarks[edit]

Randolph's township historical landmarks include the Liberty Tree (which dates back to 1720), the 1869 Bryant Distillery (famed for its applejack) and the 1924 Millbrook School, now rehabilitated and in use as offices.[35]

The Randolph Historical Society has preserved its historical heritage in the Museum of Old Randolph.[36] One of Randolph's oldest streets, Gristmill Road, is on the National Register of Historic Places.[19]

Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

The Township Council is the legislative body of Randolph. Randolph's Council-Manager form of government under the Faulkner Act calls for the partisan, at-large election of seven Township Council members, elected to four-year terms of office on a staggered basis, with either three or four seats up for election every other year. The council selects one of its members to serve as mayor and another as deputy mayor, at a reorganization meeting conducted each year.[7]

The council represents the public and develops and adopts policies, resolves public issues, formulates township policy through motions, resolutions and ordinances which reflect the needs of the public, and maintains a working knowledge of intergovernmental issues and how they will affect the Township of Randolph. Thirteen separate advisory boards and committees assist policy formulation of the council.

The Township Council is similar to a corporate board of directors and is assisted by the Township Attorney, who prepares ordinances and advises on legal issues, the Township Clerk, who prepares resolutions, and the Township Manager, who functions much like the CEO of a corporation.

As of 2014, members of the Randolph Township Council are Mayor James B. Loveys (R, term as mayor and on council ends 2014), Deputy Mayor Joanne Veech (R, term as deputy mayor ends 2014; term on council ends 2016), Christine Carey (R, 2016), Mark Forstenhausler (R, 2014; serb=ving an unexpired term), Michael Guadagno (R, 2014), Roman Hirniak (R, 2016), Allen Napoliello (R, 2014).[37][38][39][40]

Mark Forstenhausler was selected in February 2014 to fill the vacant seat of Tom McArthur, who resigned from office after announcing that he was moving out of the township.[41]

For the 2014-2015 Session, the 25th Legislative District of the New Jersey Legislature is represented in the State Senate by Anthony Bucco (R, Boonton Town) and in the General Assembly by Tony Bucco (R, Boonton Township) and Michael Patrick Carroll (R, Morris Township).[50][51] The Governor of New Jersey is Chris Christie (R, Mendham Township).[52] The Lieutenant Governor of New Jersey is Kim Guadagno (R, Monmouth Beach).[53]
