HistoryBuilt in the early 1950s on one acre of land donated by rancher Bessie Nare to the grange for a community center. Prior to having the building, the grange alternated monthly meetings between Belcher Hill and Robinson Hill schools. Mary Jane Nare, daughter of Bessie, later donated an additional acre to increase the parking area. A bronze plaque on the front door of the grange reads: "In memory of Bessie and Mary Jane Nare, Golden Gate Pioneers who donated this property to the Golden Gate Grange for the benefit of the community."
