Here is a history page for Grover Beach.

Though several different people or groups owned the land in this area over the years, iIt was D.W. (Dwight William) Grover who first realized the richness of the area. He founded what would become Grover City on 1 August 1887 at the San Luis Obispo County Courthouse. The community never really took hold until about 1935 when Horace V. Bagwell came north from southern California. He began to advertise the area as an "affordable place to buy" and many came to see and did buy. By the 1950's building had progressed and when a large building boom happened, the town began to prosper. On 21 December 1959, the town was incorporated as Grover City. In 1992, many residents began to feel the name, "The City of Grover City," was quite redundant and an election was held to re-name the city Grover Beach. Continuing to grow and develop, Grover Beach has now fulfilled many of Mr. Grover's dreams, particularly that of a train station since Oceano had beaten Grover out as a train stop many years before. In 1996, AMTRAK began rail service to Grover Beach.
