The historic district covers the town's central business district. Grant is a small town located in northeast Montgomery County in the southwest quadrant of the state. It was platted in 1858, and it was known as Milford until the early 20th century even though its post office was Grant. While not on a railroad, the town was still able to maintain a viable commercial district. There are an unusual number of frame commercial structures. The period of significance is from 1871 to 1952, and the buildings were constructed during that time frame.(Submitted on March 21, 2022, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
