Our group has assumed the responsibility of collecting photos, information, articles, and related materials that pertain to the history and activities of our forefathers who lived in the rural areas of the township (now Clayton), or in early towns such as Union, the Village of Clayton (known as Salem  in early times), and Englewood (also known as Harrisburg and Iamton).  We are committed to seeing that historical items from this area are properly documented and preserved for future generations.  To be successful, we need your support through membership and donations.  We also ask that you share or donate local family genealogies, histories and photos; photos of local sites, business and church records, etc.  We also seek members who can volunteer their time in helping us inventory, catalog and archive all donated materials.  There is a niche within our group for everyone who shares an interest in the history of this area, even though you may live far away.  We hope to hear from you!


Who We Are:

The Randolph Township Historical Society, Inc. was founded on January 14, 1998, shortly after the merger of the unincorporated parts of old Randolph Township, Montgomery County, Ohio with the municipality of Clayton, Ohio.  The township boundaries now encompass the three cities of Clayton, Englewood, and Union.  On July 27, 1998, the society was incorporated in the State of Ohio as a non profit group.  We are registered with both the state and federal IRS as a 501(c)3 charitable organization.  Memberships in our society reached 106 in 1998.  Annual memberships continue to hold around 260.  If you have an interest in the history of this area, why not join or renew today?
