Celebrate 150 Years

The Grange was founded on December 4, 1867 in Washington, D.C. as an organization for farmers.

150th Sesquicentennial Information Packet

This sesquicentennial year is an important milestone in the history of our great organization. The Sesquicentennial committee has researched and compiled a packet of information designed to assist Granges in making the most of the opportunity to learn about and to celebrate the rich history of Grange. The packet contains interesting historical facts, short biographies of important Grange leaders as well as suggested ways to celebrate. Lecturers or any other Grange member who is in charge of sesquicentennial events should find the information very helpful.
