History

Adam Gabriel Grant was one of the most influential residents of the Grove City area. He helped develop the interurban train system, bought the first bicycle and made Grove City's first long distance call. He is seen in several photos with his signature bowling hat.

Prior to 1840, a log cabin existed on the property. This farm house built was built with clay found on the land and still stands on the end of Park Street on what is now Haughn Road. The last decedent of the family, Ruth V. Jividen, died on April 14, 2014 at the age of 98.

Current Status

The Government of Grove City purchased the home for the creation of a museum. It would cost about $1 million over 10 years to transform the property into a history museum.
