Robert Grier, astronomer and founder of "Grier's Almanac", and his family lived about one mile from here and are buried in a family cemetery near the home.
Robert Grier was born in 1780 at his father's home in Taliaferro Co. He attended Old Union Academy in Greene Co., studying mathematics and astronomy under his uncle.
"Grier's Almanac" was first published in 1807 as "The Georgia and South Carolina Almanack". Published continuously since its founding, it became "Grier's Almanac" soon after Robert Grier's death May 4, 1848. Circulation is almost 2 ½ million copies annually.
