Historical Note

In 1867, the Patrons of Husbandry, later renamed the National Grange, was formed. It was organized for the social, economic and educational improvement of rural America. The various levels under the National Grange are the State, Pomona, and Subordinate Granges. The Missaukee Grange No. 918, is a Subordinate Grange in Missaukee County, Michigan. This chapter was granted a charter in 1901. Mr. and Mrs. Root, the donors of these records, were members of this grange.
