Grant Valley's Beginning

Official minutes of the first meeting of the Town of Grant Valley shows that the township was organized on the twentieth day of October, 1898, following an election on October 18th. Positions filled by election included three (3) supervisors; one (1) clerk; one (1) treasurer; one (10 justice of the peace; one (1) constable; and one (1) assessor.

Of special interest is the business items addressed at the first meeting addressed purchasing election supplies which included 100 ft. of one quarter inch rope, ten yards of cotton sheeting, two pieces of lumber one inch thick and surfaced on one side, for the purpose of constructing a flag staff and polling areas at the school house, which was located in section 26. At some point in time, the "wood shed" for the school became the 
town hall, and it remained as such, until a new town hall was constructed on land donated by Jack Strowbridge in memory of his father Clarence (Slats), and located at the intersection of County Road #7 and Bootleg Road. 

The majority of business items now requiring board action focuses on road work/projects/needs.
