Information

Grant was one of the main towns that came into being in the 1860s as part of the Crooked River gold rush. The township was originally known as Skye or Mount Pleasant but in April 1865 it was surveyed and renamed, Grant.

The township of Grant is located in the Dargo High Plains area just over 20 kilometres north-west of Dargo. Grant and its near neighbour, Talbotville, are located in the Grant Historic Area.

The main remaining features are exotic trees (pears and elderberries), traces of street formations and tracks, benched house sites, remains of fireplaces, the site of the Church of England (outline of building stumps), and scatters of domestic artefacts and the Grant Cemetery.
