On Saturday, May 19 1934, workers using a power scraper to dig a new pond at the State Fish Hatchery just outside of Randolph unearthed remains of what was determined to be a Colombian mammoth; the first discovery of it's kind in our region.  After a few days of public viewing on site at the fish hatchery, the skull and tusks were sent to Albany to be treated and preserved and later placed on display at the State Museum.

The Cattaraugus County Museum is excited to announce that after an absence of over 80 years, the Randolph mammoth is returning to Cattaraugus County! The remains of the mammoth will appear on loan by the State Museum in Albany for an exhibit slated to last for six months.

This will be a very exciting exhibit, so be sure to stop by and see it!
