Brief Description: The records for the Northern Illinois Granges consists of eleven series: Black Hawk Grange, Carroll County Pomona Grange, Galt Grange, Jordan Grange, Palmyra Grange, Rock Creek Grange, Rock River Grange, Whiteside County Pomona Grange, Illinois State Grange, National Grange, and Artifacts.  Each series represents a different grange located in the northern Illinois region that is no longer in existence.  The types of records vary from grange to grange depending on what has survived through the years.  Carroll County Pomona Grange, Jordan Grange, Palmyra Grange and the Whitside County Pomona Grange have the most complete records while little is included in the Black Hawk, Galt, Rock Creek and Rock River Granges records.  Records may include meeting minutes, secretary’s reports, treasurer’s records, and membership information.
