Grenada

Trip Planner USA  /  Mississippi  /  Grenada
Grenada is a city in Grenada County, Mississippi, United States. The population was 13,092 at the 2010 census. It is the county seat of Grenada County.HistoryGrenada was formed in 1836 via the union of the two adjacent towns of Pittsburg and Tulahoma, founded respectively by Franklin Plummer and Hiram Runnels.The city was formerly home to Grenada College, a Methodist junior college for women. The college was founded in 1851 as the Yalobusha Baptist Female Institute, and was taken over by the Methodists in 1882. In 1936, financial troubles led the church to close the college and transfer its assets to Millsaps College.In December, 1862, Confederate general Earl Van Dorn, whose troops had been encamped in Grenada, led the three brigades under his command in an attempt to destroy the Union supply depot at Holly Springs, Mississippi.In 1966, James Meredith's march passed through Grenada. The town officials appeared quite cooperative, protecting the marchers and hiring six black registrars, who registered one thousand black citizens to vote. However, after the march passed through, the registrars were fired and it turned out that the thousand citizens had never been entered onto the rolls. The marchers, including Martin Luther King and Dick Gregory, spent about a week demonstrating in Grenada before moving on.
