This is a example of the early exhibit hall construction with the four wings and the massive sets of windows. Thanks to the Wright Family Foundation, this building was refurbished to preserve the architecture and historical importance to the Altamont Fairgrounds.

Grange Hall

The Tri-County Fair Society, Inc., was created in 1973 for the express purpose of coordinating and administering the exhibitions and activities of the Granges in Albany, Greene, & Schenectady Counties in the Grange Building during Fair Week.

Grange members come from all walks of life. It is a true family organization, as all from ages 14 and up can belong. These two aspects alone provide a foundation for service as it allows diversity of thought, and the ability to gather important information and develop meaningful service projects.
