Stetson Hall, located at 6 South Main Street in Randolph, is a 2.5-story Greek Revival building constructed in 1842. It is the most monumental Greek Revival structure in the town, and occupies an elevated site in a prominent position in Crawford Square. The temple front consists of six large fluted Ionic columns, two stories in height, supporting a triangular pedimental gable. Construction of the building was funded by Amasa Stetson, and it has served as a center of civic activity in the town since it was built. Its early uses included an academy endowed by Stetson, home to the offices of Randolph National Bank and it served as the Randolph Town Hall. Its meeting space saw a variety of uses, including town meetings, civic events and religious services.
The building underwent a restoration from 1995 to 2009 and earned a place on the National Register of Historic Places in 2011. The National Register of Historic Places is the United States federal government's official list of districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects deemed worthy of preservation for their historical significance.
