Grooverville Methodist Church

Before the existing church was constructed a brush arbor was used and then a log church was built on the road to St. Marks and the church was named Lebanon Church. The church's location was moved to Grooverville in 1856 when Malachi Groover deeded one acre of land to Richard Ramsey, M. W. Linton and W. R. Joiner as Trustees for construction of the church. Linton prepared the lumber and carpenters from his plantation constructed it. The name of the church was changed from Lebanon to Grooverville.[1]
