What is the Grange?  Mt. Lookout Grange is part of a regional, state and national Grange organization, which is historically an agricultural community organization. In the summer of 2013, a handful of Mancosians re-started the group, after many years of dormancy. We are located in the beautiful Mancos Valley, in Southwest Colorado.

So, what does the Mt. Lookout Grange do?  We improve the economic well-being, social connectedness and quality of life for agricultural producers, and all in our rural community.  The hall, kitchen, and lovely yard at MLG are available for rent to anyone in our community, designed to be a welcoming, inclusive, multigenerational space.

Why is this important?  Strong communities empower individuals to succeed and foster inter-generational collaboration and knowledge sharing. This links neighbors in all kinds of beneficial relationships and serves local causes. And, it’s fun!

How We Do This:
• Monthly Community Suppers, by donation (second Sunday of each month)
• Workshops teaching the rural arts and other skills
• Affordable space rental
• Kitchen use programs for classes and cottage industries
• Resource sharing through message boards and other communication mediums
• Social Events
• Programming for members, and the community at large
• Grassroots, nondenominational, nonpartisan approach to community building
What We Value:
• Family–in all its forms
• People of all ages, cultures, genders and beliefs
• Involvement, leadership, and initiative
• Learning and education
• Diversity of opinions and backgrounds
• Community Service
• Benefits to members
• Youth leadership and development

  1. Hello, my name is Alyce Billy. I wondering if you could help me without by providing a place i can hold my graduation reception in April 2017. So I am looking to get a few more answered, but i would greatly appreciate it if you could email me back.

    • Hey, sorry we havent gotten back to you. Its possible the Grange Kitchen remodel will be finished by April, but not guaranteed. Otherwise the space is available for just about any kind of gathering so yes! For a graduation reception the costs to rent the space would be less than $50. Ill get a clearer idea of the costs in the next 24 hours.
