Head south on Grange Hall Road, the intersection of Dayton-Xenia Road features the Charity Grange No. 1208 Building, currently known as the Beavercreek Event Center.  This Hawker Church-based Grange was a spin-off of the Beaver Grange which met at Beaver Church east of Alpha.  

Early Granges were established as a farmer’s collective for bulk purchasing plows, washing machines, coffee, sugar, tea and other commodities.  This fraternity stressed organization, education, cooperation and legislation as a remedy to some of the farm and national problems.  Charity Grange No. 1208 was organized in 1875 and originally met in the basement of Hawker Church.  This block building replaced a two-story frame building in 1953.
