Parent County: Livingston County
Established: Jan. 29, 1841

Seat: Trenton
Named After: Felix Grundy, Tennessee Senator and United States Attorney General

Is situated in the northern part of the State, about midway between the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. The surface is undulating, and well watered by tributaries of Grand river. The table lands and divides are generally prairie, and the streams are skirted with timber, affording sufficient for fencing and fuel if properly husbanded. However, groves should be planted, and then there will be no question about supply. The soil is very rich and well adapted to all farming purposes. Turnips have been raised in this county by Mr. Osborn, which, after being closely trimmed, weighed eleven pounds three ounces; and James Wynn has produced corn, one ear of which contained 1383 grains, all well filled, and a radish weighing four pounds three ounces. Mr. Isaac Froman raised in one season, upon a piece of ground two feet by fifteen, first ten bushels of onions, and afterward eight bushels of turnips. Farmers will find good land at low prices. Mechanics and machinists are wanted to supply the demand in their line. Excellent waterpower and good localities for saw, and gristmills. Schoolteachers –that are teachers- are wanted. Loyal, energetic men, from whatever clime, will here find a hearty welcome, and cannot but reap a rich reward for their labor.
