Book About Randolph Makes a Great Gift

Posted: November 27, 2019

Are you looking for a gift for someone? The Historical Society of Old Randolph (HSOR) is offering a wonderful book entitled Randolph, NJ Remembrances, by Bob Baptista, a former Randolph resident and amateur photographer.

Mr. Baptista, who resided in Randolph in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, took many photographs of Randolph. He decided to create this non-profit book from these photographs which are accompanied by his writings about some of the history of our scenic town. Additionally, he has gathered a good deal of information from various people and online sources.

The book contains 162 pages that include over 250 photographs. It is being offered for an introductory $25.00 price. All proceeds will benefit the Randolph Museum.

Copies will be available for purchase at the HSOR’s annual holiday reception at the Randolph Museum on Saturday, December 7, 2019 between the hours of 12:30 and 3:30 p.m. Want to buy the book but cannot attend the holiday reception?
