The Grange was built in 1926 as a community gathering place after the burning of the Sierra Nevada Hotel. It continues to represent the community as a venue for a wide variety of presentations and forums. Also, outside groups may rent the building, which has hosted everything from exercise classes to memorials and wedding receptions.
The Grange and the quilt are star attractions in the Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park in Coloma, where gold was first discovered January 24, 1848. This quilt block design is thought to date between 1860 and 1890. It was painted by Grange member, Julie Castro..
