Long Description:
The following comes from the Lake Creek Historical Society website:

The Lake Creek Grange was chartered on April 11,1928, with forty-four members. The first Grange master was Floyd Charley. The first secretary was Julia Sidley.

In 1929 a contractor gave an estimate of $1,200.00 to the building committee. Mr. & Mrs. Henry Meyer donated the Grange site. The whole community donated labor. Even though the building was not finished, the first meeting was held on May of 1932. The cement floor did not go down until December of 1944. There were many fundraisers and donations given to build the Grange building.

This information was gleaned from the Lake Creek Letter (Summer 2003), written by Vera Walch

This Grange falls within District 1 on the Oregon State Grange website.

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.
