Introduction to Grants, New Mexico
Grants was first home to the Anasazi Native Americans. Don Jesus Blea was the first permanent European resident in the area. He established his home here in 1872 and named it "Alamitos." Three brothers from Canada came to establish a railroad camp here in the late 19th century, and the town was eventually named after them.
