GROVES AND HIGH PLACES: Groves in the Most Christian Country on Earth

Grove: idol worship hot spots

“For they also built them high places, and images, and groves, on every high hill, and under every green tree. And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.
1 Kings 14:23-24

Groves were one of the places the Bible records the worshiping of idols, pagan gods, demons and devils.

So it stands to reason that there would be an abundance of places in the USA (The Most Christian Country on Earth Ever!™) named after these outdoor pagan worship centers.

And so there is.

It all began with a recent discussion centered around the number of places in the USA named after groves. Neither person could even guess how many such places existed.

The number is surprising.

The count: 710 places in America which have “Grove” in their name. This is roughly 90+ percent of all the Grove place names in the entire English-speaking world.

What a coincidence!

This is by no means an exhaustive list.

Tennessee is likely the state where such places are most popular, with Texas, West Virginia and Pennsylvania close behind.

“And Asa did that which was good and right in the eyes of the LORD his God: For he took away the altars of the strange gods, and the high places, and brake down the images, and cut down the groves”
–2Chronicles 14:3


“And I will pluck up thy groves out of the midst of thee: so will I destroy thy cities.”
–Micah 5:14

High Places and Groves: Places of End Times Demon Worship

[NOTE: This list is NOT all-inclusive, though every effort has been made to be thorough. One list has the number of Grove place names in the USA at over 1420 and it didn’t count any names with less than two places. (This is more than twice the number on our list, though our list included only official names of places). Another list had over 900.

At some point, this list may be updated.]

Did we miss any?

There’s power to be had worshiping in the groves and high places.

  • It is a relatively weak power;
  • It is a dark, selfish power;
  • It is a very temporary, earthly power; and,
  • It is a power which comes at an extremely high cost: health, happiness, deception and eternal condemnation.

Some people adapt to most any situation, while convincing themselves they are happy. Why settle when you can have true peace and happiness?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation

“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
–2Corinthians 4:3


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
-—1 Corinthians 1:18-19
