OUR HISTORY

Chronicled in the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek

(1830), the United States government gave a section

of land to Peggy Trehan, a Choctaw Indian, and an

adjoining section to John Donley, a white mail rider.

All that separated the two sections was a survey line

known as present day Line Street...

The original owners then sold their sections to Franklin E. Plummer

and Hiram G. Runnels. The two sections became known as Pittsburg and

Tullahoma. Because of a bitter rivalry between the towns’ residents, representatives

met in 1836 in an effort to solve the problems. This meeting

resulted in a plan to merge the two towns into one.

On July 4, 1836, a mock wedding ceremony performed by Rev. Abraham

Lucas, a Methodist minister, joined a bride representing Tullahoma and

a groom representing Pittsburg to form the new town of Grenada. Some

believe the town was named after Granada, Spain, and simply misspelled.

QUICK FACTS

The city was once home to Grenada

College, a Methodist junior college for

women. Because of financial troubles, the

church closed the college and transferred

all assets to Millsaps College.

James Meredith’s 1966 “March

Against Fear” arrived in Grenada

on June 15. Civil Rights

activists protesting racial segregation

included Dr. Martin

Luther King Jr., Joan Baez,

Andrew Young, Ralph Abernathy,

and others. The group’s

demonstrations continued in

Grenada for one week.
