ALTONA GRANGE ACTIVITIES DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC:
The Altona Grange has been active for over 100 years and we plan to continue to
support rural community life for another 100. But these are difficult times.
During this pandemic we have been adhering to Boulder County guidelines for
gatherings by allowing the use of the Grange property for 25 people or fewer
outside and 10 or fewer inside.
We are taking time this year to improve and repair the building and grounds and
will hopefully return to opening the hall for community use in 2021. If you are
looking for a venue for a wedding, celebration, meeting, or class next year, please
check our rentals page for rates and send us an email or give us a call.
Thank you for using and supporting the historical Altona Grange Hall.
Our purpose is to preserve and improve the historic Grange building and create a meaningful rural community center. We use the money earned through rentals and fundraising to serve this purpose.
Freshly painted with newly finished floors, Altona Grange Hall #127 has the charm of a historic hall with all of the modern amenities for hosting a variety of events, party, concert, play, meeting, recital, dance, seminar, wedding or ???
Contact us and let us know what event you are planning.
Circa 1895, 50′ X 24′, hardwood floor, high ceilings
At west end of main hall, raised two ft. from hall floor, circa 1945, 16′ X 29′, wood floor, variable lighting, vintage hand-painted backdrop. Kitchen: Below ground level, 66′ X 24′, linoleum floor, double-oven range, refrigerator, freezer, for use by our members and renters, not for use as a”legal kitchen”.
The parking area, which is the graveled portion of the 1 acre property on both the north and south sides of the building, accommodates about 50 cars. Renters can park on the west side of 39th street as well, but NOT the east side of 39th or Nelson Road. Google Earth can be used to get a birds-eye view of what that looks like.
The main floor upstairs is 24′ 11″ by 76’6″, but that includes the raised stage area at the west end of the building, which is 16″3″ by 30’7″. The stage can be used for serving food, accommodating muscians, seating guests, accommodating speakers or whatever you wish. The anteroom off the main room to the SE, which holds the coatrack, trashcans, chairs and tables, is 21’1″ by 10’1″. That anteroom also contains the east stairs going to the basement. The SW stairway to the basement and kitchen is off the south side of the stage. The basement has the same footprint as the upstairs main room, including the stage.
The building can accommodate 150 people (give or take a few party crashers). That’s a fire regulation; it’s because the downstairs is accessed via steep stairs (and narrow ones on the south side) and could not be evacuated quickly in emergencies. The only easy egress is the front door on the east side. The building has no handicapped accessible ramp; ascending two steps are required to enter, and two more are required to get up to the main floor. The bathrooms are, however, on the main floor. Music: We’re sorry, we no longer allow DJ’s. But we encourage our rental customers to hire a live band, or use Ipod and speaker system for music. The Altona Grange Hall has great natural acoustics. Only acoustic music is allowed outside, and must not continue past sunset.
