Kelley Homestead in Elk River, Minnesota is maintained by the Minnesota Historical Society as a living history farm with interpreters giving people a taste of what Oliver Kelley's life was like on the farm in the 1850s frontier. thumb left The remains of the Washburn "A" Mill (Image:Mill City Museum.jpg) are now part of a milling museum on the Mississippi River. Oliver Hudson Kelley played an important role in farming as one of the founders of the National Grange (The Grange (organization)), along with several other clerks in the United States Department of Agriculture. The movement grew out of his interest in cooperative farm associations following the end of the Civil War, and he established local Grange chapters in Elk River (Elk River, Minnesota) and Saint Paul. The organization worked to provide education on new farming methods, as well as to influence government and public opinion on matters important to farmers. One of these areas of concern was the freight rates charged by the railroads and by the grain elevators. Since there was little or no competition between railroads serving Minnesota farm communities, railroads could charge as much as the traffic would bear. By 1871, the situation was so heated that both the Republican and Democratic candidates in state elections promised to regulate railroad rates. The state established an office of railroad commissioner and imposed maximum charges for shipping. Populist (populism) Ignatius L. Donnelly also served the Grange as an organizer.
