Caption: The Hiram Griggs House
Additional Description: The Hiram Griggs House is historically and architecturally significant as a local example of Victorian Italianate styling and for its association with Hiram Griggs (1836-1909), the first Mayor of the Village of Altamont. The house was built for Griggs in 1873. Griggs was an attorney with an office in Knowersville, and secured employment with the Albany & Susquehanna Railroad (later the D&H) related to the new rail line in Knowersville. Later Griggs would use his influence to facilitate the name change of the village from Knowersville to Altamont. His former home was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on July, 19, 2010.
