Inscription. In 1798, on a nearby site, the first gristmill in this area was built by Valentine and Margaret Cunningham. Later another gristmill was established here. Soon a community was established. The town, first known as Pine Grove, was incorporated as the Borough of Grove City in 1883. In 1908 the mill was converted to become the first electric plant in Grove City.
