Did you know, the first settlers came into an area that is now Grayson in 1820. The town of Grayson was founded in 1879 by James Patterson McConnell. He purchased 80 acres of land from his uncle Stephen Billue, which became part of the town. McConnell began clearing land and building homes to make the area more attractive. The city of Grayson was first called Trip. In 1901, John Ellery Jacobs, the postmaster and civic leader, wrote to the post office department requesting that Trip, Georgia be changed to Berkley, Georgia. On December 6, 1901, the General Assembly of Georgia approved an act to incorporate the town and change the name. Shortly after, Ellery Jacobs was notified that there was already a Berkley, Georgia. He then suggested Graymount (because there was a clear view of Stone Mountain), but it was also taken. He then suggested the name of Grayson, Georgia.
