Welcome from the Board President

Welcome to Grimes County and the Grimes County Chamber of Commerce. Here we support businesses of all types and sizes and offer something for everyone. 

Whether you're looking for a new home, school, place of worship or work, a nice spot to eat or enjoy a wine from one of our local winers- our community offers it all. 

From agriculture to beautiful scenic drives, small town life and more- making a trip to Grimes County is well worth it.  So stay awhile, do business here, shop here, live here and stop by to say hi sometime!
