The Beginnings News You Can Use!

Before settlers came in the early 1800's, what is now Grove Hill was inhabited by the Choctaw Indians. The first known white settlement in the area was near Magoffin's Store on the north side of town. The county seat of Clarke County was located here in 1832 because the spot was most central to the rest of the county. Known variously as Smithville, then Macon, the name Grove Hill was selected around 1850 for the large grove of oak trees on the plateau. The town was officially incorporated and chartered in 1929. To find out more about the history of Grove Hill, please visit The Clarke County Historical Museum.
