Pine Grove

Pine Grove, a farming community in southwestern Dallas County, began to be settled about 1841. Benjamin DeLaughter, moved to Pine Grove in 1871. He was a Baptist minister farmer and operated a large steam powered gin. James N. Butler named the community when the Pine Grove Post Office was established in 1874. The post office was located in the general store operated by Butler and his brother, John W. Butler. After the Post office was discontinued in 1923, the mail was carried by horseback from Holly Springs to Pine Grove to Sparkman to Fairview.
