History[edit | edit source]

Grace was first settled in 1893 and a post office established there in 1894. Grace was so named at the suggestion of a land attorney at Blackfoot when a post office was located there. The majority of the inhabitants were principally engaged in farming and stock-raising. The town is situated on the southeast side of Bear River, surrounded by a rich farming district. The total population of the Grace Precinct was 1,479 in 1930.
