The National Grange was founded in 1867 to help farming men and women improve their lives through education, socializing, non-partisan political activity, and cooperative buying power. See this great one-page overview of Grange history!
National Grange members also receive discounts and benefits, such as:
- 20% discounts at Wyndham and Choice group hotels (including Comfort, Quality, and Clarion Inns)
- Discounts and bonuses on car rentals at Budget, Avis, and Hertz
- Prescription discount cards
- See the full list!
The Grange welcomes people of any age, race, ethnic origin, religion, and political viewpoint.
Michigan State Grange
The Michigan State Grange, founded in 1873, includes 47 Community Granges. The State Grange considers legislation that involves rural issues; it invites input from local groups and lobbies for rural interests on the state level and recommends legislation to the National Grange. The Grange does not support specific candidates or political parties.
The Pittsfield Grange, formed in 1901, is now made up of people from many walks of life — farmers, teachers, artisans, scientists, to name a few. We enjoy fellowship, the opportunity to learn informally from each other, and serving the wider community.
The Grange Hall is used by a variety of community groups, including a fencing club and several traditional dance groups. Members of these groups join Grange members for semi-annual “work days” to maintain the hall.
