Liberty Grove

Liberty Grove was a small farming community at the junction of Farm Road 1880 and a dirt thoroughfare, on Doctors Creek and the South Sulphur River, south of Cooper in south central Delta County. The area was originally part of the E. R. Crowder Survey. Pioneers had arrived by 1854, when the Liberty Grove School was organized. Early settler Charles Nidever donated land for a cemetery in 1867. By 1905 the school enrolled forty-four White students and employed two teachers. In 1936 the community consisted of the school and the cemetery, surrounded by a scattered collection of farms. Cooper Independent School District absorbed the school in the late 1940s. Liberty Grove was shown on a 1964 map as a few scattered homes, and in 1966 its residents numbered twenty-five.
