Originally a stage stop and Pony Express station named for Gen. Gordon Granger, this town became a UP railroad camp in 1868. It was an important junction between the main line and the Oregon Short Line. Granger was also a railroad tie float station, where the timber could be received from Ham’s Fork and loaded on the trains. Once a key point on early travel routes, from the days of covered wagons to the early highways, the current course of I-80 bypasses it to the south.
