Mission and History

WHAT IS THE GRANGE

The Grange whose official name is  “The Patrons of Husbandry”, is a non-profit fraternal organization whose roots are in agriculture.

  • It is an advocate for rural America that does not endorse or support political parties or candidates.
  •  A community meeting place for education, fellowship, and fun.
  •  A connection for vibrant resilient communities – coming together around issues of food and agriculture

HISTORY

The White Clover Grange Hall started out as the Mohler Grade School. It was built and designed by A. E. Doyle, a Portland architect in 1921. The grange needed a home and the school system had outgrown the building so in 1932 it became the new home for the White Clover Grange
