A monument commemorates the councillors, staff and residents who supported the municipality from 1864 to 1994. 

The Shire of Grenville was a local government area southwest of the regional city of Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. The shire covered an area of 845 square kilometres (326.3 sq mi), and existed from 1861 until 1994. On 6 May 1994, the Shire of Grenville was abolished, and, along with the Shires of Bannockburn and Leigh, and parts of the Shire of Buninyong, was merged into the newly created Golden Plains Shire.
