Alaska State Grange

This is the home of the Alaska State Grange, and its 7 subordinate granges. The State Grange was organized in 2004, but the history of Granges in Alaska goes back to 1934, when the first grange was formed in Palmer, Alaska. See our History page for the whole story.

Each subordinate grange in Alaska has their own section of this site. To reach them, either click on the second link on the left, for the subordinate grange index page, or type in http://alaskagrange.org/Grange# (using the number of the particular grange in place of #). Note that the word "Grange" must be capitalized.
