Homesteaders in the Columbia River Gorge lived miles apart and faced life in isolation. By the 1880s, farmers banded together in organizations called Grange. Mt. Pleasant Grange held its first meetings in 1889 in members' houses. In 1892 they built this hall for $300.00 on donated land. The Mt. Pleasant Grange Hall is one of the oldest continually used grange halls in Washington State. Its members are still active. Visitors have supposedly felt and seen the spirits of earlier settlers around the Grange Hall.

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.
