City of Grants

City of Grants Grants is a gateway to a number of National Parks, Monuments and Native American Pueblos History
Grants began as a railroad camp in the 1880s, when three Canadian brothers – Angus A.

Grant, John R. Grant, and Lewis A. Grant – were awarded a contract to build a section of the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad through the region. The Grant brothers' camp was first called Grants Camp, then Grants Station, and finally Grants. The new city enveloped the existing colonial New Mexican settlement of Los Alamitos and grew along the tracks of the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad. The town prospered as a result of railroad logging in the nearby Zuni Mountains, and it served as a section point for the Atlantic and Pacific, which became part of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. The Zuni Mountain Railroad short line had a roundhouse in town (near present-day Exit 81 off Interstate 40) and housed workers in a small community named Breecetown. Timber from the Zuni Mountains was shipped to Albuquerque where a large sawmill converted the timber to wood products that were sold around the west. After the decline of logging in the 1930s, Grants gained fame as the "carrot capital" of the United States. Agriculture was aided by the creation of Bluewater Reservoir, and the region's volcanic soils provided ideal conditions for farming. Grants also benefited from its location, both being an airway beacon and later by U.S. Route 66, which brought travelers and tourists and the businesses that catered to them. Today the beacon and FSS building on the airport (KGNT) has been restored as museum. Perhaps the most memorable boom in the town's history occurred when Paddy Martinez, a Navajo shepherd, discovered uranium ore near Haystack Mesa, sparking a mining boom that lasted until the 1980s. The collapse of mining pulled the town into a depression, but the town has enjoyed a resurgence based on interest in tourism and the scenic beauty of the region. Recent interest in nuclear power has revived the possibility of more uranium mining in the area, and energy companies still own viable mining properties and claims in the area.

Looking to possibly relocate to this area from NC. Can you share positives/negatives. My hubby is checking out a job in Gallup but Grants has come up on our radar as a “suburb” of Gallup and Albuquerque. Crime rated, schools (we have school age kids), housing etc share away. PM if needed
Any pictures of the dog park on here???...it be nice to take my kiddos out to a different scenery.

The mayor needs to go back to school and relearn the constitution. His ignorance will end up killing people. He particularly needs to read the part concerning National Emergencies.
I would like to request a copy of some public records but the link on the city page directs you to a "404 Page Error" message. How do I submit my request?
Is this quality construction work? These paths JUST got put in. Littered with stuff pushing up through the asphalt already. Who did the work? How much did the city (I mean the taxpayers) have to shell out for this? I love the paths, ride them on my bicycle all the time...but they AREN'T going to be usable in 6 months at this rate.
Extremly happy to have Laura back at her job as City Manager. Very Disappointed that the City Manager is defending the very Poor Live Streaming! I watch every council meeting on my phone with headphones and I cannot hear! I cannot see either, unless it happens to be someone in the back of the room talking. Instead of making excuses, Please seek help from the younger generation they Actually Know what they are Doing.
