Grove City
Grove City is a self-made community created from humble pioneer origins. As the nineteenth century began, the area where Grove City sits today was a wilderness filled with oak, beech, maple, walnut, dogwood and other trees. The town founders named the village for the remaining groves of trees left standing after their initial clearing.
While Grove City was served by a daily commuter service offered by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, an interurban railroad was responsible for a significant amount of the population growth around the turn of the century. Grove City became an entertainment destination during the 1920s; people came to town not just to be entertained by Beulah Park (1923), but to also view movies at the Kingdom Theatre and to dance at Grant’s Auditorium.
In the early 1960s, Interstate-71 was built, followed a few years later by Interstate-270. Grove City was now at the foot of two major interstate highways, and many businesses found root in what used to be farm fields.
