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”.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Town Hall will be closed on Monday, May 27th in observance of the Memorial Day holiday.

The next date for the dumpster to be in place at the Marshall County
District 2 shop in Grant is Monday, July 15th.

 

Recently a County work crew has been working to clean up the gutters along Main Street.  It’s important that the gutters remain clean so that they function as intended.  When the gutters become clogged, not only do they present an unfavorable appearance, but they also do not function as they were designed. 

 

A contributing factor in the clogging of the gutters is yard debris that is blown out on our roads, which also poses a significant safety risk to motorcyclists.  Accordingly, effective immediately those blowing debris onto the streets, including but not limited to grass clippings and leaves, may be issued a citation for violating the Town’s littering ordinance.  This policy extends to all Town of Grant streets and not just Main Street.  Thanks for your understanding.
