National Register Celebration
Saturday, May 4, 11:00 am
In 2001, Copake Grange #935 was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
That distinction is being commemorated, the historic marker, funded by the William G. Pomeroy Foundation®, will be unveiled. New York State Senator Daphne Jordan and Assembly member Didi Barrett will both be on hand to mark the occasion.
Built in 1902-1903, the Copake Grange is the only Grange Hall left in Columbia County which still operates as an active Grange. In the past two years, the Copake Grange has seen a surge of membership as it has regained its place in the community. One of the goals of the Copake Grange is to maintain its historic meeting place.
“We are grateful to the William G. Pomeroy Foundation for funding this historic marker,” said Copake Grange President Chris Quinby. “The Copake Grange holds a special place in the history of the Hamlet of Copake, and we are happy that this marker will memorialize the historical significance of this 116 year old building.”
