Kansas State Grange records

Call Number: RH MS 610


The Kansas State Grange is one of 37 state Granges that provide community and family-service in both rural and suburban United States. As a member of the National Grange, another fraternal order known as the Order of Patrons of Husbandry founded in 1867, the Kansas State Grange is part of the nation's oldest national agricultural organization. It focuses on education and youth activities, assisting those with hearing difficulties and legislative actions. This collection contains secretary minute books, financial records, youth group information, photographs, correspondence, and other related records from the state chapter and its subordinate chapters throughout Kansas.
