grange hall

Our historic grange building is the space that brings us together. It is a place for us to hold our meetings and share food, laughs, and stories. It also allows us to offer an affordable space for public use such as classes, weddings, quinceañeras, and other special events. For more information on our rentals click below.



The people are what makes our grange so special. We welcome people from all walks of life. You don't have to be a farmer to be a grange member. We are looking for folks who are community minded. As a member you are offered members only benefits through the National Grange Organization as well as benefits that are just for our local Rockford Grange members such as discounted venue rentals. We also offer a Junior Grange program for children ages  5-14. For more information on becoming a member click the button below.

Seeing the Forest


the Trees:

Stewarding Our Public Forests


, February 22, 2019 at 5:30 p.m.

PLEASE JOIN US for four thought-provoking conversations provided in partnership with Oregon Humanities Conversation Project whose goal is to connect people to ideas and to each other, not to push an agenda or arrive at consensus. Conversation is a powerful medium to invite our community’s diverse perspectives and explore challenging questions. Hope you can join in!

2: Seeing the Forest and the Trees: Stewarding Our Public Forests

We live in a state with abundant forests, and yet we don’t all see the same thing when we look into the woods. Oregon is known for both its timber industry and its deep environmental values. What are the beliefs we have about our forests and what will we, as a state, do to steward, manage, and protect this special resource?

In this conversation, Mariah Acton, a recent graduate from the University of Oregon where her master’s work focused at the intersection of conflict resolution, nonprofit management, and public administration, she recognizes that this is an exciting time for public-driven, sustainable forest management, and she appreciates that there are more conversations to be had.

Mariah currently works in Salem as a strategic business analyst at Oregon Housing and Community Services where she helps to facilitate conversations around housing, homelessness, and anti-poverty policies. Mariah was also a social science researcher for the US Forest Service and a former volunteer facilitator with forest collaboratives in the southern Willamette Valley,

Rockford Grange doors open and soup's on at 5:30 pm. Conversation begins at 6:30 pm.

$5.00 suggested donation for conversation; no one turned away for lack of funds
