History

The Washington State Legislature created Grant County on February 24, 1909, from the southern half of Douglas County.

It is named after President Ulysses S. Grant. Grant County is located near the center of Washington in the Columbia Basin, and is noted for both its hydroelectric dams and federal irrigation projects. The county’s economy is based on the growing and processing of a large variety of irrigated crops.
