History of Hiram GA

The city of Hiram was first founded as Gray’s Mill Georgia, which was named after one of the earliest settlers, Garret Gray. He was Issac Gray’s son, who was a revolutionary war soldier from South Carolina. Garrett Gray married Jane Jenkins on January 1, 1828, in Franklin County, Ga. She was also born in South Carolina and was orphaned as a small child. Hiram also served in the 5th Congressional District of Georgia Legislature and was known to be a prominent possible candidate for governor.

He was also a private in Company D 1st Regiment Ga. Calvalry until 1862 when he was discharged for old age. According to the city of Historical Hiram site, “One of the greatest contributions that Garrett Gray made to the local community was the building of Grays Mill as early as 1850. Located on the outskirts of what is now Hiram, approximately 100 yards above the present Highway 92, the site of the mill was a lovely picturesque place, complete with a dam with water pouring over it and a large mill wheel at 1 side. A favorite local spot for picnics and gatherings, the creek at the mill was also used for baptisms. For many years, the grist mill operated as a place where everybody from miles around brought their corn and wheat to be ground. Because of the mill’s importance in the community as both an economic and social gathering place, the town, in the beginning, was named Gray’s Mill, Ga.”
