Piney Grove (Pine Grove), a rural community fifteen miles northeast of Gilmer off U.S. Highway 259 in northeastern Upshur County, was probably first settled sometime after the Civil War around a church. A school was in operation around the turn of the century, and in 1906 it had an enrollment of sixty-seven. In the mid-1930s Piney Grove had a church, a school, and a number of houses. After World War II the school was consolidated with the Ore City school, and by the mid-1960s only the church, a cemetery, and few scattered dwellings remained. In the early 1990s Piney Grove was a dispersed rural community. No population estimates were available.
