Fire and Water Damage Restoration Services in Grandview, TX
Learn about Gandview:Grandview is located in the southeast portion of Johnson County, and it is surrounded by fertile, rich, black land, which has played a vital part in the development of the County. The town was founded in 1854 just one mile north of its present site. F. L. Kirtley, a Baptist preacher and blacksmith first settled here, in the summer of 1850. Kirtley built a log cabin and traded with the Indians and the immigrants that were coming into the area. The settlement at this time did not have a name. In 1854, John Whitmire, brother-in-law to Kirtley, came into Texas from Ohio to buy land. One day as he visited the store of Kirtley, Whitmire looked about him and exclaimed, "What a grand view!" The name struck Kirtley as a fine name for his store and thriving community.
A post office was established in this community in April 29, 1856, and was given the name of Grand View. On September 25, homes were moved, from the location referred to by present Grandview residents as "Old Town". Only the cemetery has remained in the original location. The First National Bank of Grandview was established in 1890, one of the oldest banks in the County. It is now known as the First State Bank. The bank building is the only one left of the town that was built before the fire of 1920. Grandview's Masonic Lodge is the oldest in Johnson County, the charter being granted June 14, 1861.
Grandview, in spite of a disastrous fire, March 14, 1920, has developed into one of the leading towns in Johnson County. The fire destroyed 72 dwellings and half of the business houses. The fire started and ended with property owned by W.D. Davis.
