Grange Building

The day Jack Pine hosted his amazing glass pumpkin patch this fall, I savored the sunshine by taking a drive. This Grange building is just north of Jack Pine’s place, right along the beaten path, but I’ve never had time to stop.

The color pictures were fine but the black and white images speak to me.

The Grange dates back to 1867 but I’m not sure about the age of this building. It’s quite old but appears to be lovingly cared for. It was formed to help farmers with the many issues they face and even to do some political lobbying on their behalf.

Standing there, for just a moment, I could imagine horses tied to trees and hitched to wagons while men in overalls discussed the price of corn.

That’s the amazing thing about visiting some of these old places. If you have any imagination at all, time travel is possible.
