The land where Grove City sits today was discovered by Hugh Grant in the early 1800’s. Grant owned and operated a gristmill in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and transported his goods down the Mississippi and Ohio rivers. Once his goods were sold, Grant would return to Pennsylvania on foot. On one such trip, he traveled across the Scioto Valley and came across the area that is now Grove City. Grant liked the land so much he purchased it in 1803, and he later returned with his wife to start a new life. Years later, William H. Breck purchased land of his own in the area, and became the founder of Grove City.
