Grain Valley history:

In the early 1800's, this area was explored and used extensively for trapping. Eventually, in the mid-1800's, two settlements grew up near the trapping. These were Stony Point and Pink Hill, the forerunners of Grain Valley. The area suffered greatly during the Civil War. AFter the peace was restored, the people returned to rebuild. When the Chicago and Alton Railroad surveyed in the area, they decided to bypass Pink Hill and run the tracks the two towns. As time went by, more business came and then the people began to migrate from both Pink Hill and Stony Point. The result was Grain Valley. The town was created officially on 5 September 1878. It was named because of the great abundance of grain found in the area and also because of the valley in which it was located. Grain Valley was incorporated in 1945 and continues to grow at a rapid pace in the early 21st century.
