"WELCOME TO GRANITE CITY
In 1885 a cowboy named Johnny CHANCE struck it rich!
He started a boom town that grew to a population of over two
thousand! Granite had two main streets, 'Government & Granite',
with two hundred buildings, thirteen of which were saloons!
But it was not to last, and by 1915 it was left to the deer & grass . . .
Donated by the friends of Granite City."
