Green Grove was a mile southwest of Hainesville in southern Wood County; its farms were dispersed from just north of what later became Farm Road 49 south to Lake Fork Creek. The community was settled by black farmers shortly after the Civil War and had a school, church, lodge hall, and store. Around the turn of the century most of its inhabitants left for urban jobs, and by 1968 only one family remained in the vicinity, though descendents of the original settlers still owned land in the area.
