History of Grantsville, Utah
Taken from the Utah History Encyclopedia (Links Added)
-4-

Methodists established a free mission school in 1884 and a Baptist church was completed in March 1985; however, the dominant Mormon Church has two local stakes and nine wards. A traditional social event each year, called "The Old Folks' Sociable" celebrates Grantsville's heritage.

Newspapers that have serviced the community are the Grantsville Reflex, News, Observer, and Gazette. The local news is now reported by the Tooele Transcript.
