RANDOLPH - When most people think of autumn they think of beautiful trees, falling leaves, cider, pumpkins, apples and maybe even burning piles of leaves. In the mid-1800s, people living on farms in the Mid-West began a tradition of celebrating when the harvest was completed by hosting a hoedown. The name probably came from the fact that the work was done and they could set down their spades or hoes. The hoedown was often held in a barn where square dancing took place and ample food was provided.
