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.
