GRINDROD, pop 1,419, is an AGRICULTURAL, DAIRY FARMING, LOGGING and retirement community 14 km southeast of SALMON ARM on the Shuswap R. Originally known as N ENDERBY, it was a station on the SHUSWAP & OKANAGAN RWY and site of a SAWMILL and early pole yard. The post office, opened here in 1911, was named after Edmund H. Grindrod, first CPR telegraph inspector in BC in 1886, who settled near KAMLOOPS.
