A late 1800s gold mining town that once had 5000 people. It is 15 miles northwest of Sumpter, in the northeastern corner of the county about 45 miles out of Baker City. The first gold was found on July 4, 1862, and by 1900 Granite had a drug store, two hotels, livery stable, a post office, five saloons and three stores. The gold choked off, the town faded, and today Granite and its dozen or so citizens remain as a monument to the past.
