GOLDEN ROD GRANGE No. 114

The GOLDEN ROD GRANGE building is one of a group of historic buildings that date from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and make up the village of Swanzey Center.  The building was constructed in 1916 and was designed to harmonize with the architecture of the surrounding area.  Other notable historic and civic buildings and sites in the immediate area today include Mount Caesar Union Library, Swanzey Town Hall, Monadnock Regional Middle-High School, Mount Caesar Elementary School, SAU #93 Administrative Offices, the Carpenter Home, Mount Caesar Cemetery, and the Potash Bowl. 

 

The Grange building is located on the west side of Old Homestead Highway, directly across the street from the town hall and Mount Caesar Union Library.  Because of the amount of daily traffic on Old Homestead Highway and the number of residents that frequent the other buildings in Swanzey Center, the Grange is highly visible.  

The Grange building is a rectangular, two-story structure with clapboard siding and a gable roof.  The interior of the building includes features commonly associated with Grange activities:  a lodge room with a stage for presentations, a dining hall, and a kitchen.
