Granite City is a ghost town in the town of Wyoming, Waupaca County, Wisconsin, United States.[1] The settlement was located in section 13 of the town of Wyoming, and had formed before Wyoming was split from the larger Town of Helvetia in 1890.

History[edit]

Granite City formed around what was described as "a rich granite quarry" owned by J. H. Leuthold and (partner) Holman. The quarry and town was served by a four mile spur of the Milwaukee, Lake Shore and Western Railroad, and the town featured a store.[2]
