This building was originally a meetinghouse for the Methodist Episcopal Church, dedicated on Oct. 9, 1839. It was later purchased by the town of Rye for use as the town hall and rededicated on Nov. 9, 1873. The town bell, which had been in the Congregational Church, was recast for the third time, after repeated cracks, and mounted in the new building. REF: Dedication of town hall in Rye, N. H

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.
