Long Description:
In a Blog by Polygon the Dancing Bear at (visit link) He says this:
"The Pittsfield Grange, as it is usually called, organized in 1901, is the only survivor of a dozen or more Granges that used to exist in Washtenaw County.

Pittsfield Township used to be like many Midwestern rural townships, six miles square. In 1900, it had a population of 1,050; in 1950, it had 5,369; in 2000, despite having lost its northern section to city annexation, the population was up to 30,167. Indeed, it is one of the fastest growing communities in Michigan. I don't live in Pittsfield Township, myself, but in the adjoining city of Ann Arbor.

The Pittsfield Grange Hall, a simple white gabled structure resembling an old one-room schoolhouse, is located on what used to be a rural road between Ann Arbor and Saline."
County: Washtenaw

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.
