Quick Description: A little worse for wear, the Orchard Grange 346 is no longer an operating grange. However, the building still stands as a testament to the strength of this rural society.

Long Description:
Located on Grandview Road just east of Vista Road, Orchard Grange 346 speaks of the strong farmers' movement in this district. Vista Road was the main north-south route from Ferndale to northwestern Whatcom County and Canada until the late 1920s when US 99 was built a short distance east of here.

As to the grange, there's no history that I've been able to find on when it started and ceased. The building is rather attractive even today.
County: Whatcom

Chapter Name (number): 346

Is The Chapter Active?: No

Visit Instructions:
To post a visit to an existing Grange Hall waymark, you will need to post a picture of the front of the building, with the name of the chapter in the background if that is possible. Including your gps device in the picture is not neccesary, but wouldn't be cause for disapproval. If your Grange Hall has any unusual or unique features that you feel others would enjoy viewing, additional pictures are always welcome.
