The settlement started to develop towards the end of the seventeenth century. In the beginning, it was a wood processing area from which the timber was transported to Danzig. The very first time that the town called Griškabūdis was mentioned was in 1697-1706 s in the Sintautai church heritage books. In 1715-1741 s it consisted of 16-22 households and in 1742-1743 s they built the first wooden church (chapel), which oversaw the Naumiestis Basieji Carmelites in which the Carmelite Monastery was founded and in 1805 it had been repealed. In 1796 they had built a new wooden Church. The carmelites contributed to the spiritual formation of the local population. From 1765s Griškabūdis had been started to be called a town.
