History[edit]

A post office was established at Grammer in 1893 and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1972.[3] Grammer was likely named for a railroad official.[4] The town had two general stores operating simultaneously in the 1940s and 1950s as well as a barber shop and grain elevator. Grammer School, built in 1899, operated as a 1-8 school until consolidating with Rock Creek School in 1958.
