Brief History[edit | edit source]

Landgrove is unusual in that it was chartered to people who already lived there. In 1769 William Utley, his son Asa, and their families settled in what they thought was the town of Bromley (now Peru). In time they discovered that they had settled in a gore of unchartered land between Bromley on the west and Weston and Londonderry on the east. Up to that time it had been assumed that Bromley abutted Weston and Londonderry.  [1]
