Grimes County is a county located in East Texas. The seat of the county is Anderson. The county was formed from Montgomery County in 1846. It is named for Jesse Grimes, a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence and early settler of the county. The western part of the county is drained by the Navasota and Brazos rivers, which form its western boundary; much of the eastern portion of the county drains into the West Fork of the San Jacinto River, while the Trinity River drains the northernmost areas of the county. In 2002 the county had 1,704 farms and ranches covering 414,887 acres, 55 percent of which were devoted to pasture, 32 percent to crops, and 12 percent to woodlands. In that year local farmers and ranchers earned $31,796,000, with crop sales accounting for $27,284,000 of that total. Cattle, forage, dairy, poultry, horses, peaches, pecans, berries, and honey were the chief agricultural products.
