The Grove House

The Colonial House

Name:  The Grove House

Date:  March 2010

Image Number:   CG83cdCG08

Comments:  The Grove House at 385 Harrison Street was built ca. 1932 by Annie and Marjorie Nicholas on land purchased from the Presbyterian Church. The home was built on the site of the old Presbyterian cemetery with the stipulation that church members could use its bathroom.  A few years later, the Nicholas family converted their home into the a rooming and boarding house for teachers.  Between the mid-1930s and mid-1960s, a number of teachers at the Scottsville High School resided there.  In 1978, Jesse and Jacqueline (Beal) Grove bought this home and completely renovated it.
