Other information: The Gabriels Grange Hall dates to 1913 or earlier. The national organization, the National Grange of the Order of Patrons of Husbandry was founded in 1867.

Between 1931 and 1933, the Grange Hall was used as a Junior High School. Local children attending the Saranac Lake High School after the local elementary classes found themselves behind in their studies and often took an extra year to finish because of it, so the Gabriels district established a Junior High School with additional subjects to prepare their students to be competitive. The Adirondack Room at the Saranac Lake Free Library received two yearbooks which document this school in July 2012.
