History:  

GRASSTON, a city in section 12 of Grass Lake Township, was incorporated on October 21, 1907, and separated from the township on April 8, 1908; it was established in 1898 on a side track of the Great Northern Railway and platted on June 6, 1899. John A. Swan owned the land and suggested Swanville, but the name was already in use in the state; also suggested was Oxenville, but the railroad selected Grasston, and Swan agreed. The post office began in 1899, with Annie Swan, first postmaster.
