“Halcyon grange Located at 1157 Pleasant St, Blue Hill, ME Back in the day when farmers in the country were being squeezed out by high railroad transport prices, farmers in rural communities built Grange Halls all over the north United States where they could have meetings about what they were going to do to find alternative markets for their farm produce. Maine had many of them, and Halcyon Grange, located at 1157 Pleasant Street in Blue Hill is still going strong....in its own way. It's a great place to learn how to square dance (in preparation for the country dances held during summer in the town hall in Blue Hill, and to hob nob with locals at a pig roast, or to listen to country music, or to join with other children for visits to farm day, or to eat a baked bean dinner with others while listening to the Loose Canon Jug Band, or to enjoy a harvest dinner., followed by homemade pie... Keep your eyes open for upcoming events, as posted in front of the Grange on Bucksport Road, Route 15, and know about them and attend them. You'll be glad you did!
