Groves, Texas is the third largest city in Jefferson County. In the words of our city manager, D.E. Sosa---Groves is "a great place to live, work, learn, shop and conduct business." This warm, friendly, well-kept community of 17,000 is nestled between Port Arthur and Port Neches in the heart of Jefferson County.

Groves had its beginning in when Asa E. Groves looked longingly at the wide expanse of land east of Griffin Nursery. He formed a company and purchased 300 acres in the center of present day Groves.

Family entertainment is provided each year with the Texas Pecan Festival, which commemorates the planting of hundreds of pecan trees ordered by Asa Groves and planted by Wiley Choate, a foreman at Griffin Nursery. Many of these trees are still standing, making the city one of the loveliest in the area.
