In Orange County, the Town of Randolph is home to three covered bridges, two in East Randolph and one in South Randolph, all built in 1904.
Chelsea is located near the center of Orange County and in 1795, it was designated as the seat of the county government, thus becoming the "Shire Town", an old English term. The Court House that stands at the head of the South Common was built in 1847, on nearly the same site as the earlier court house. In 1813, the group completed construction of their church that stands at the head of the North Common. Chelsea has received considerable positive recognition for its twin commons and its fine old buildings, some dating prior to 1800. Most of the brick buildings were built in the period of 1820-1835 with the exception of the Town Hall, which was dedicated in 1894. The local Historical Society was instrumental in establishing a Chelsea Village Historical District. In late 1983, the society was notified that the local Historical District, encompassing nearly all of the central part of the village, has been officially entered into the Register of Historic Places in Washington, DC.
