This is the closest that I have come to an abandoned Grange. There is a minor amount of damage from the Christmas storms, that I noticed on my first visit two weeks ago, and was still there yesterday. But there is activity here, as some drapes that were closed before are now open, and fresh food was visible inside. The interior is clean and maintained. I suspect that the local community is very small, and without a large amount of money, but are doing the best they can with what they have. And I hope that this place survives.

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.
