Haley Stark, Reporter

Willamette Grange #52 is holding a Valentines Benefit Dance and Silent Auction on Feb. 10, including snacks, drinks, professional photography, and live music from the band Shatterproof.

Held in the historic building on 27555 Greenberry Rd., Corvallis, the event runs from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and costs $12 in advance or $15 at the door. Guests can also partake in a silent auction as well, which will include items created by local artisans. 

Originally meant as places for farmers and their families to gather, Grange Halls are part of the National Grange of the Order of Patrons of Husbandry, the oldest national agricultural advocacy group in the United States.

Willamette Grange #52 is the second oldest Grange Hall in the state of Oregon, dating back to 1873. The current Grange Hall has stood since 1922. As part of Willamette Grange #52’s restoration efforts, proceeds from the dance and auction will go towards renovating the building. 

Those interested in attending the event can visit the organization’s website to purchase tickets and learn more about the location’s history.
