The society was formed in 2001 by concerned citizens seeking to preserve the old St. Mary's Church at Lost Lake. With the financial support of more than 200 people we were successful, and on April 15, 2002 this became the official home of the Lost Lake - Randolph Historical Society.
We immediately set to making necessary repairs and preparing the space for museum exhibits. We now house substantial displays on one-room schools, cheese factories, area farming, and the Randolph Fire Department. Our special exhibits include an extensive model train set, antique clothing and hats, a vintage kitchen, and natural history items previously displayed at Nature Land.
We continue to add to these exhibits each year and most recently we have completed the restoration of the Lost Lake School after it was moved to our property in 2010. See our Lost Lake School page for photos.
Each year we add more to our museum, preserving artifacts and sharing the knowledge of how our local community was shaped by people and events.
We are non-profit organization (501c3) and donations to the society are tax-deductible.
