The Grant-Sawyer Home, formerly known as the A.G. Grant Homestead, is the oldest home in Grove City. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and was occupied by descendants of the same family since the 1840s. There are only a handful of homes in Ohio that can make the same claim.
The home will be open noon to 4 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 19 and 4 to 8 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 9 during the Century Village Open House & Trolley Tour.
The Grant-Sawyer Home will be closed during January and February 2018. In March 2018, tours will be available Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. by appointment only (maximum of 10 per tour).
The upstairs of the home, not currently open to visitors, has a central hallway with small sitting area and three bedrooms. The nursery will be styled as a 19th century room with toys spanning 60 years. The guest bedroom will be styled in the 1880s, the furniture belonged to Ruth Jividen. The master bedroom will be styled in the 1850s to 1860s, the furniture belonged to the Grant/Jividen family. Mr. Jividen’s desk will be displayed in the master bedroom.
