Title: The Grangers (Patrons of Husbandry)
File Attachment:
Attachment Type:

The Granger movement, that spread from one end of the land to the other in the seventies, swept through Warren county. In March, 1876, the farmers of this county, with headquarters at Williamsport, organized the Warren County Co-operative Association, with a capital stock of ten thousand dollars. It was designed to deal directly with the manufacturers and thus save the parts of the county, and were not without good results, but as time passed the general feeling was that a business man was suited for his particular role and that the farmer was best adapted to his own line of work. There are some farmers' clubs today, but the object sought by the Patrons of Husbandry, which finally ran into political party channels, has gone forever.
