SERVING WITH PRIDE!
AMVETS (for AMerican VETeranS) is an advocate for America’s veterans on issues such as job training, employment, funding for provided health care and other benefits to which they are entitled.
Ever since Randolph AMVETS Post 51 was chartered on April 22, 1947, we have had a proud history of assisting and sponsoring numerous programs for veterans who have served our country and its citizens.
The helping hand that AMVETS extends to veterans and their families takes many forms.

History of AMVETS Post 51
In 1820 the town built its first Alms House on South Street to help widows, orphans, abandoned families, the elderly and people who could not otherwise support themselves for other reasons.
That original stone Alms House still sits on South Street, serving as a private residence. As there was no federal assistance or state welfare in 1820, local towns were expected to take care of their poor out of compassion and civic duty.
The first Alms House arose from a need to house the poor residents of Randolph. The South Street Alms House was a small building that housed about 13 people and a caretaker. That home quickly proved inadequate. The system had become so unwieldy and expensive, that by 1868, the town leaders had to do something quickly.
