At the extreme south of the town there is a large grove in which stands the wreck ot a house built by Willie Jones, the patriot son of Uobert Jones, the Attorney General of North Carolina to Mis Mftjesiy King Oeorge II, in 1749 He died while his sun Willie was st Katun College, Kngland. On his return about the year 1765, he had (he Grove House erccted. The (our fiont rooms weie brought IVoin his father's home called ^'Jones’ t'astle," in an adjoining County.
