Randolph County Reviews

2 reviews
This isn't the friendliest of counties. If you like living in the middle of nowhere and see your neighbors on "people of walmart . com", then you'll be ok here. The people are nice and friendly from first contact to strangers, but if you've lived here for a while, their niceness wears off.

Randolph county lacks in most popular shopping centers. They have poor school funding. But the community is close knit.
