Hickory Grove - Organized in 1887, Hickory Grove is another town
which grew up around the railroad. An orphanage operated here from 1897 until 1905. There
is a large rambling hotel that offered nightly accommodations to weary train travelers
across the street from the Leakey Boarding House where the school teachers were given
comfortable accommodations. It would have been improper for them to stay at the Hotel.
The Orphanage located on Chestnut and Main Street.
