PRODUCT DESCRIPTION  
Beautiful certificate from the Grange Hall Company issued in 1922. This historic document has an ornate border around it and has the signatures of the Company's President and Secretary and is over 84 years old.

Lebanon Grange No. 21 holds the honor of having dedicated the first hall in Connecticut built specifically for the purpose of housing a Grange chapter.

In August of 1884, Lebanon Grange authorized the construction of a hall and store for the cost of $1,725.00. The hall was finally ready for dedication on November 12, 1885.

Grange Hall

As a testament to the Connecticut State Grange’s contributions to the University of Connecticut, a hall was dedicated on the campus. It is appropriately named “Grange Hall.” There was a mounting housing shortage on the Storrs campus in 1940 that was causing a great deal of concern to President Jorgensen. Earlier that year, the State Grange had established a scholarship at UConn which drew donations from each of the Pomona and Subordinate Granges in the state. During a coversation with State Master Sherman Ives, President Jorgensen asked how many members there were in Connecticut. He was told that there were 20,000. He then proposed the idea of each Grange member in the state donating $1 each with the college matching the 20,000 one dollar donations for the construction of a residence hall on campus to be called “Grange Hall.”
