The Gold Trail Grange encourages families to band together to promote the economic and civic well-being of the community and agriculture.  We are committed to fostering education and promoting social events - including festive live music and dance - to help build community in the Coloma Lotus Valley.

Most of our  activities are in the Grange Hall at 319 Highway 49, in the center of Coloma.
Birthday party at the Gold Trail Grange
The hall, built in 1926 as a community gathering place, is a venue for a wide variety of presentations and forums. Groups and individuals may rent the building, which has hosted everything from exercise classes to wedding receptions, memorials and birthdays.

Each month the Gold Trail Grange has a business meeting and also sponsors community gatherings on a vast range of topics, from meteorites and native plants to League of Women Voters election information and Coloma history. Periodically, the Grange sponsors dances, with live music one of the attractions. The dances are part of a long-standing tradition; early-day Grange treasury reports enumerated expenses for food, orchestras and even floor wax. At one time the “Gold Pannies,” a can-can group made up of local women, entertained at fundraisers.


The Grange is located along the beautiful South Fork of the American River that roars and meanders through the heart of the Coloma Lotus Valley, depending on the season.
