Photo of New Mexico Museum of Mining. Three things Grants is known for include the railroad, carrots and uranium. It began because of the railroad, was known as a “carrot capital” of the U.S. in the 1930s due to a nearby natural lake and the rich, volcanic soils that were ideal for growing them, and saw a boom in mining due to a discovery of uranium nearby. Tourism gives Grants much of its economic activity today.
