c.1890 Farm House For Sale on 1 Rural Acre
This old farm house for sale in Canola, Kansas, was built in a lovely rural setting just 11 years after the town was formed. For a time the community was a rowdy cowtown, and by 1920 the population reached 1,500 after gas and oil was discovered in the area. Today Grenola’s population has dwindled to 216, but the residents are proud of their history. Below is indication of that via an 1880 newspaper blurb.
The first child born in the town was Grenola Lee, daughter of George and Mrs. R. A. Lee. Being the first child born in the town and having the same name, the town company honored her by deeding to her in fee simple one of the best lots in the place. Per grenolaks.com.
