We are so very proud to announce that we have (through intensive research) pieced together an amazing story that connects Valentown Hall, the great potato boom industry in the area and the Victor Grange. It's quite the story!

As it turns out, the founders of the Victor Grange were also the farmers of the massive potato fields in the area, and were also the families that supported the construction of Valentown Hall. The design of the Hall was built specifically to support the Grange effort and the booming potato industry of the area, and also in the belief that the new railroads would be coming through the property. There is so much to tell, so much fun history discovered!

We've put together a series of booklets regarding this relationship between Valentown, the Victor Grange, and the potato boom. They will be available in print at the museum when we are open. Meanwhile, they are available here on the website as .pdf files:

Please check them out! They don't tell the WHOLE story (it's a very long and big story!) but they tell some of the best parts.
