"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."
