PINE GROVE, TEXAS (Cherokee County). Pine Grove is off Farm roads 747 and 2138 twelve miles northwest of Rusk in western Cherokee County. It was first settled around the time of the Civil War and grew up around an early Pine Grove Church. A local school was in operation by 1896, when it had an enrollment of eighty-eight. In the mid-1930s the community had a church, a school, and a number of houses. Since World War II many residents have left the area, but in the early 1990s a church, a school, a store, a cemetery, and a few scattered houses still remained. In 2000 the population was thirty.
