Hickory Grove

Hickory Grove is at the convergence of Farm roads 3285 and 2570, three miles northeast of Fairfield in central Freestone County. The community established a school and church in 1870; it also had a cotton gin, a store, and a cemetery. In 1893 twenty-four pupils were enrolled in its school, and by 1903 enrollment had decreased to nineteen. Hickory Grove had only a few scattered dwellings during the 1930s. In the 1960s there were a few dwellings in the area; there was also a cemetery, which was later named the Jameson Cemetery. The cemetery was shown on the 1989 county highway map.
