What we see of Grenville today is what's left of a small village established on the eastern plains of New Mexico in the late 1800's. Originally, the site was probably a railroad siding with a water tower in the days of the steam locomotives, and a community grew up around that. The years of the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression took most folks out of town but some stayed and continued ranching cattle and sheep.

Interestingly enough, the population of Grenville is up about 52% since 2000... but we're talking a total population of 38...
