Long Description:
From Texas Ghost Towns;

"The name describes the site and surrounding area of the town trees. The Grove began as a town in the early 1870s. The town's economic base was farming and stock raising. It maintained a fairly stable population of slightly more than a hundred residents until the 1940s when the town began to decline. The reason was a new state highway bypassing the town and the consolidation of agriculture. Visitors will see a beautifully restored row of commercial buildings as they were during the town's earlier years. The Grove is on Farm to Market Road 1114 just south of Texas Highway 36 in Coryell County."
