Randolph County Museum

Bosworth Store 

Experience the tangible artifacts of Randolph County’s history at the Randolph County Museum of the Randolph County Historical Society. Housed in the 1828 Blackman-Bosworth Store building in the center of Beverly, the museum has a broad-based collection including early settlement tools, Civil War artifacts, belongings of early citizens, store and business collections, and much more.

The museum also features rotating special exhibits in the meeting room, as well as hosting the regular informative programs of the Randolph County Historical Society.

Behind the museum, open by appointment or during special events, is an original subscription school rescued from a rural Randolph County location. This small schoolhouse originally housed a school “subscribed” by parents who would band together to hire a teacher before universal public education in the area. Today it features an extensive collection of one-room school artifacts and memorabilia.

Also behind the museum is the relocated Stalnaker Cabin, an early settlement log cabin of uniquely interesting construction. Saved and moved by the Stalnaker Family Association, the cabin was restored by the Randolph County Historical Society.
