Inscription. Originally called Pennville, the Grampian Hills P.O. served the area (1833-1892) when it became Grampian. The first county rural mail delivery started here in 1900, carrier E.A. Spencer. In the 1820s Quaker pioneers built a log meeting house at the Friends Cemetery site. Grampian native Nora Waln (1895-1964), famous novelist and WWII correspondent, was named distinguished Daughter of PA.
