'Grangeville' Given Town as Its First Name

Susan E. Lincoln, daughter of a pioneer of the Santa Maria valley, contributed this information about the valley during a Daily Times survey in 1928: "In the fall of 1875, the strong and flourishing Grange of the valley of Santa Maria, determined to have a town here. They waited until the crops were harvested and then proceeded to lay out the town. William A. Haslam Sr., the deputy county surveyor, made the first survey, but George W. Lewis's survey was accepted because it gave wide streets we are proud of. The Grangers named their newly plotted town, 'Grangeville'."[1]
