Long Description:
Fredonia Grange No.1 is located on West Main Street in Fredonia, New York. This first Grange was organized in Fredonia in April of 1868. A historical marker next to the Grange building, which was built in 1915, says:

"Near here on April 16, 1868, farmers organized the first Grange to champion their needs in the healing of the nation recovering from Civil War."

The National Grange of the Order of Patrons of Husbandry is still an active organization with the mission to strengthen "individuals, families and communities through grassroots action, service, education, advocacy and agriculture awareness."

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.
