was founded in 1902 and named after the Benedictine Pope, St.
Gregory I. Three years later, the telegraph lines and the railroad
came through the area, sparking an immediate increase in population.
Therefore, a general store was built in 1906, and in the following
year, an excavation for the church began. By the spring of 1908,
a parish school had been established, with each settler giving
a tariff of $10 to pay the teacher's salary.
