Collection Historical Note

The Byron Grange met for the first time on March 2, 1921 at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Seal, Bryon, Illinois.  This was the first grange organized in Ogle County.  Thirty-two charter members were sworn in that night with John Cooper chosen as master, Clarence Emery as secretary, and Dora Norton as lecturer.  The meetings were held in member's homes but later moved to the community house.  Byron Grange sponsored many organizations throughout the years such as the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and the anti-tuberculosis fund.
