Hickory Tree Grange:

One of only two buildings at the Sandstone Museum Center in its original location, the "Grange Hall" started out as a one-room schoolhouse for the Amherst community. Built in 1879, this building went from schoolhouse to church before it became home to the local Hickory Tree Grange.

Now used as the main meeting hall by members of the Amherst Historical Society, the building is well known to many area school children as the site of our award winning "One-Room Schoolhouse" program. Recently, the Grange has undergone several restoration and preservation projects, including a complete interior and exterior painting in correct period colors.
