The town prospered from railroad logging in the nearby Zuni Mountains, and it was a section point for the Atlantic and Pacific, which became part of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. After the decline of logging in the 1930s, Grants-Milan gained fame as the “carrot capital” of the United States. Agriculture was aided by the creation of Bluewater Reservoir, and the region’s volcanic soils provided ideal conditions for farming. Grants also benefited from its location as airway beacon and later by U.S. Route 66, which brought travelers and tourists, and the businesses that catered to them. Then the uranium mining boom took place and Grants NM was the leading uranium producer in the world. Location Grants is the county seat of Cibola County and is located along the Trails of the Ancients Byway, one of the designated New Mexico Scenic Byways. The city is also known as the “Uranium Capital of the World” and “Gateway to Lavaland”. Grants has a population of 9,163 people according to the 2020 Census. The city has a history of logging, mining, and tourism. It is a growing tourist destination, favored for its fishing and boating at Bluewater lake, its proximity to the Ancient Puebloan ruins, and its outdoor recreation in national monuments and forests. Albuquerque International Sunport, locally known as the Sunport, is the primary international airport serving the U.S. state of New Mexico, particularly the Albuquerque metropolitan area and the larger Albuquerque–Santa Fe–Las Vegas combined statistical area.
