Surrounded by the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Northeast Alabama, Grant is located in Marshall County on top of Gunter Mountain at an elevation of 1,310 feet.  Beautiful scenery surrounds Grant with views of Guntersville Lake, the Tennessee River and historic Kennamer Cove.  Grant is also conveniently situated between surrounding cities such as Guntersville, Scottsboro and Huntsville Alabama.


     Grant takes its name from the U.S. Post Office, which was established on May 18, 1887 to serve the citizens of Gunter Mountain.  The post office was named for President Ulysses S. Grant.  The Town of Grant was later incorporated on November 15, 1945. 

 

     Rich in history, Grant is home to the Kate Duncan Smith Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) School started in 1924.  Also, located just five miles from Grant is the Cathedral Caverns State Park.  The Caverns gained national recognition as one of the scenic attractions in the state of Alabama and the South through an article written in the June 1962 issue of Reader’s Digest, “A Man, A Cave, and A Dream”.
