Grover, Co. was named for Dolly Grover Donovan, wife of the postmaster.
Town Know For: Grover remains an important stop for visitors to the grasslands as well as for those traveling along the Pawnee Pioneer Trails Scenic and Historic Byway, a 136-mile driving route through eastern Colorado. Along the route, the Pawnee Buttes rise more than 500 feet above the plains. Not only do the buttes provide scenic backdrops, but the whole trail also affords extensive opportunities for bird watching. In fact, bird lovers have documented over 250 species in the area.
For a historical perspective on Grover's pioneer past, visit the Depot Museum, which weaves together Grover's tales of boom and bust. Once a prosperous city featuring multiple groceries, hotels, a newspaper, a school, a post office and an opera house, Grover's families and businesses finally moved away, first because of the Dust Bowl and later due to the departure of the local railroad.
