Long Description:
On the outskirts of East Peoria, not far from Illinois Central College and along Grange Road, is Hopewell Grange Hall.

The Grange is located on the west side of Grange Road, a short distance north of the intersection with James Parkway, and about a half mile south of the intersection with US 24.

The building is a rounded metal building with a facade at the front, on top of a low concrete wall. The Grange logo is at the top. The words "Hopewell [G]range" are below and above an overhang. The front door is below that.

This grange is #1747. This chapter began in 1907. Unfortunately, only the main page is up, so I can't provide more information about it. It is still active - announcements were read in the local paper, and they were still listed in the Illinois State Grange web site.

They list themselves as being in Washington. The zip code is Washington's but the city boundary almost surrounding them is East Peoria, and the old neighborhood of Sunnyland is further down the road about 3/4 mile.

Visit Instructions:
To post a visit to an existing Grange Hall waymark, you will need to post a picture of the front of the building, with the name of the chapter in the background if that is possible. Including your gps device in the picture is not neccesary, but wouldn't be cause for disapproval. If your Grange Hall has any unusual or unique features that you feel others would enjoy viewing, additional pictures are always welcome.
