Grit is an unincorporated farming and ranching community established c. 1889 in Mason County, in the U.S. state of Texas. It is located on SH 29, 6 miles (9.7 km) northwest of Mason, near Honey Creek. Grit was centered on the cotton industry, and once had its own cotton gin. While never a large population, the community did have a school, store and church. The prevailing theory of the town's name is that it reflects the quality of the area soil. Grit received a post office in 1901, which remained active until 1980.
