Life at the Grange

Built in 1888, the Lorane Grange, located in Lorane, Oregon, is the oldest grange in Lane County and the fourth oldest in Oregon. Once an important part of rural communities, with bad economies and shrinking rural populations, the role of granges has shifted from serving the needs of farmers to acting as a gathering place for the entire community. The Lorane Grange acts as an important hub for the small community it serves.
