Grove Hill is in the Gulf Coast region of Alabama.


Established in 1832 as the seat of Clarke County, Grove Hill was named for a grove of oak trees on the surrounding plateau. The whole Southern hospitality is something the local population has down pat here, so don't be too surprised if you get a Yankee comment when you show up in your Ivy League t-shirt.

Get in[edit]

So remote, better have a car, as it's in the middle of a meshwork of two lane highways that don't see much in the way of public transport.

Get around[edit]

Accommodations in Grove Hill are really quite rustic; you'd do better to stay in Thomasville or somewhere else.

  • 1 Hometown Inn USA, 571 N Park Dr, Thomasville, +1 334 636-2000. This place is real homey with Civil War books and wall hangings to look at, complimentary breakfast, and an outdoor pool.
