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”.  








UPDATE Effective 3/28, Kidtopia playground is closed until further notice.  The walking trail and park area remain open.


As a safety precaution to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus in our community, effective immediately and until further notice Grant Library, the Grant Gym and Grant Town Hall are closed to the public. Town Hall personnel will be available for emergencies during our normal office hours of 9-5 Monday through Friday, but we request that if at all possible you contact us by phone at 256-728-2007 or via our Facebook page should you have an urgent need.

Also, Tucker Fitness Center will be closed until further notice. Those impacted will have their memberships extended for the number of days that we are closed. We apologize for the inconvenience, but out of an abundance of caution, feel that this is the correct decision.

As many of you know, baseball and t-ball signups were just completed, and unfortunately those activities are being suspended as well. We will be monitoring the situation closely and hope to commence practices and the season as soon as possible.

We encourage all of you to follow all of the CDC and WHO recommendations on how to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, particularly the recommendation to maintain social distancing and avoid large groups. We hope to return to normal operations as quickly as possible and will provide updates as they are available.
