The move has been in the planning for years in hopes of protecting Grundy from recurrent flooding.
The town is located in a flood zone and continues to be plagued by rising waters from Levisa (Luh-VYE-suh) Fork river.
In fact, several times Grundy has nearly been swept away by flood waters.
Officials hope moving the town will also improve the local economy.
Already, several national companies have asked about moving to the new part of the town.
Grundy is relocating to the opposite side of the river onto a leveled mountainside. When construction is complete, the town will be three times its current size.
The fire station was the first to relocate a few days ago.
But the project could take up to 10 years to complete and cost more than 250-million dollars.
Grundy is a town of 11-hundred.
