Long Description:
"Grimshaw was named after Dr. M.E. Grimshaw , a native of Kingston Ontario, who established a medical practice in the Village of Peace River Crossing in 1914. He served on the village council for many years holding offices of reeve, village commissioner and later the position of mayor. Grimshaw's location was chosen by the Central Canada Railway in 1917 and was surveyed by Alfred Driscoll in September 1921. When the site was first surveyed it was commonly known as "the stop" by many railway crews. On February 18, 1930 the hamlet was established as the "Village of Grimshaw" and became the town on February 2, 1953."
