Executive Director
Initially founded in 1852, the area that became Grove City was first settled by European
settlers in the early 1800s. Closely tied to both Jackson Township and Franklin County,
Grove City was carved from the area in and around both the township and county.
By 1853, Grove City boasted 50 residents courtesy of the partnerships between William F.
Breck, George Weygandt, William Sibray, and Jeremiah Smith. Broadway became the
heart of the thriving settlement and by 1870 the population had nearly tripled in size.
In 1891 Grove City progressed further as the railroad found its way to town bringing with it
both passengers and cargo. Daily commuter service increased the trade and population
growth. The rail service continued until 1929 when train was replaced by automobile.
By 1930, Grove City’s population had swelled to more than 1500. Post-World War II Grove
City reveled in a housing boom as workers moved seeking employment at the local
factories, gas stations, and farms.
Hungry for more? Stop by the Grove City Welcome Center & Museum to learn more about
Grove City’s rich history, courtesy of the City of Grove City and the Southwest Franklin
County Historical Society.
