Additional Information: 

The farmer’s organization called the National Grange of the Patrons of Husbandry was formed in Washington, D.C. on December 4, 1867 by Oliver Hudson Kelly, US Department of Agriculture clerk, with six others.  Unlike other organizations at the time, women were able to participate.  Caroline Hall, Kelley’s niece, was an advocate for women’s equality and was later named an honorary 8th founder.
