Historical note The Patrons of Husbandry is a national farmers' organization, founded originally for social and educational purposes, from which sprang the Granger movement, an effort by farmers of the 1860s and 1870s to correct economic abuses through cooperative enterprise and political action. Local units (called granges) became increasingly active politically as members sought legislative and judicial remedies for their economic plight. The national movement's political activity peaked in 1875, but the Patrons of Husbandry and its granges continue to support the political and economic goals of farmers and serve their original function as a social organization as well. The Church Hill Grange was founded in September 1873 and became noted locally for its stock sales. Scope and Contents The Kentucky Patrons of Husbandry records (dated 1873-1939; 2 cubic feet; 5 boxes, 3 items) contains minutes, financial records, membership rolls, reports, pamphlets, and artifacts from several Kentucky granges, particularly the Church Hill Grange, in Christian County, Ky. Included from the Church Hill Grange are minute books, stock sales account books, a membership roll, secretaries' records, receipts and expenditures, badges, symbols, an embosser and miscellaneous other items, including a photo board of the surviving charter members taken in 1895. There are also records present from several other granges: minutes from the Garrettsburg and Flat Lick granges, and a receipt book for Christian County Grange No. 34.
