We stumbled upon this abandoned Grange building near Alma, Michigan recently. I kind of liked the way it was sitting at this intersection in the middle of the country. I could just imagine during the horse and buggy days, people coming here for meetings and social events - back when everybody knew their neighbor's, and helped each other out when someone was in need.
The Grange organization started around the end of the Civil War. Apparently it was much like a co-op, where people shared information and new technology with each other,and many other community events and functions. It's purpose and existence has changed and evolved thru the years.
