Grimes County, Texas Information
Located in the southeastern portion of Texas, Grimes County had a population of 26,604 as of the 2010 census. The county, formed in 1846 was named for a signer of the state’s Declaration of Independence, Jesse Grimes and the county seat is Anderson. The Navasota and Brazos rivers form the western boundary of the county. The Trinity River is located to the north, and eastern areas are part of the watershed of the San Jacinto River.
In the historic period, French and Spanish explorers encountered the Bidai Indians, who were mentioned in Spanish records from 1691. Like other tribes, they suffered high fatalities from new infectious diseases and joined with the remnants of other Native American people later in the historic period. This area was generally not settled by Europeans and creole Spanish for nearly a century, during Spanish colonial rule. After Mexico achieved independence, it accepted settlers from the United States into eastern Texas. It allowed them to practice their own religion if they swore loyalty to Mexico. A few structures in Anderson date from this period, as well as from the Texas Republic and early statehood eras. Because of the wealth of structures reflecting this extended historic period, the town and nearby area are designated as the “Anderson Historic District”, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Anglo-American migration to what became Grime County began in the 1820s, when it was part of Mexico. Early settlers were primarily from the South, especially Alabama, and most brought enslaved African Americans with them, whom they relied on for labor. Texas achieved independence in 1836 and settlers continued to arrive from the United States. Much of the fertile lowlands were initially developed for cotton plantations, especially in the late antebellum period. Grimes County was organized in 1846, a year after the Republic of Texas agreed to annexation by the United States and became a state. In 1859 the Houston and Texas Central extended its line into the county. Anderson, the county seat, rejected it and was bypassed for Navasota, which soon surpassed it in size. Anderson finally got a railroad in the early 1900s, but never caught up with Navasota. In the late 19th and 20th centuries, the Burlington Northern Santa Fe and the Union Pacific became the major railroads in the county. The county remained mostly rural and agricultural until the late 20th century, which contributed to its continuing population losses. Timber harvesting and processing were part of early industry in the 20th century. But stock raising, and dairy farms contributed more to the overall agricultural economy in the later 20th century, making up 93% of its revenues. In addition, crops have become more diversified. Railroad restructuring in the late 20th century resulted in mergers among some lines. In the 21st century, State Highway 90 is the major north-south thoroughfare, and State highways 30 and 105 run east and west. With some new manufacturing, population began to increase since the late 1970s. In 2014 the census estimated 27,172 people living in Grimes County.
Actor Chuck Norris lives in Navasota, the county’s largest city, where he and his wife opened a bottled water production facility. He starred in the film Walker, Texas Ranger.
The total area of the county is 802 square miles, of which 787 square miles is land and 14 square miles is water. Adjacent counties are:
