Calumet County


Gravesville has about 400 inhabitants, and also had for several years strong hopes of being selected as the county seat. Leroy Graves settled here in 1849, and madc it his particular business to see that his village was not forgotten. In 1854 and 1855 when Chilton Center and Chilton were having their contention, he nearly gained his point. In 1849 Mr. Graves erected a saw-mill. He removed to Fond du Lac in 1866. Besides several good general stores, Gravesville contains a saw and planing mill and a fumiture factory. The Charlestown Grange holds its meetings here. One of the oldest lodges of Good Templars in the county still flourishes in Gravesville.
