Grant Ranch

A Community with History

Grant Ranch, originally acquired by Governor James Benton Grant in 1878. Grant was raised in the south, and brought the southern tradition of hunting and shooting with him to Colorado. Grant served as governor of Colorado from 1883 to 1885.

The Grant Ranch was an active working ranch and enjoyed by the family for riding and equestrian pursuits. During World War II it was a breeding center for the U.S. Army Remount Service, providing stud services for the area. One of the stallions was Granville, who ran in the 1936 Kentucky Derby.

The sporting history of the Grant Ranch goes back over a century and continues with the golfing tradition of today. Many of the original ranch buildings are still in use today.
