As of November 1, 2015, the Branch Mills Grange will no longer to be able to grant public access to Branch Pond.

The past two winters have damaged the building's foundation to such a degree that they hear this winter will result in the building's collapse onto the access road to the pond. Dwindling membership and the resulting lack of funds necessary for maintenance of the Grange Hall have made it impossible to repair the damage to the foundation. Concern for the public's safety has forced the Grange to make this difficult decision.  Please contact David Parkman for any questions regarding the grange.
