The Grange movement was formed to advance methods of agriculture and promote the social and economic needs of farmers. Grange Hall, built in 1910, hosted political meetings, dances, suppers and sales of fresh produce. For a time, the building was also used for high school gym classes. The Grange was the farmer’s “home away from home”, and the center of social life for farmers and their families.
In 1972, Grange Hall became the House of Guitars, one of the most unique music stores anywhere. It sells guitars to visiting rock stars from around the world. The HOG hosts free concerts on the I-Square stage in summer and on the Grange Hall stage in winter. Stop in to see rare guitars, outfits worn by the Beatles and Jimmy Hendrix, and autographs from thousands of famous musicians who have visited the “Great House of Guitars”.
