Grant County Extension Office
Set on the edge of the beautiful Gila Wilderness, Grant County has a lot to offer.
Grant County is rich in culture, history and natural resources, and is the gateway to the Gila Wilderness, with so many places to see. Grant County contains many treasures such as, mountain cliff dwellings of ancient people, historic forts, a city of rocks, an open-pit copper mine, two winding rivers, family owned cattle ranches and farms and beautiful desert sunsets. Located in the southwest corner of New Mexico, Grant County offers a range of ecosystems, including desert, grasslands and mountains. Grant County is named for our 18th president Ulysses S Grant. The largest city and county seat is Silver City, located at the edge of the Mogollon Mountain range.
