History in a Pecan Shell

Walnut Grove did not appear on many early maps. It did appear on a 1936 map and showed a church, cemetery, sawmill and a few homes. The Handbook of Texas suggests that "Children probably attended the nearby Bullard schools."

1973 maps show both the Walnut Grove Church (and cemetery) as well as the Mount Carmel Church. Walnut Grove appears on the TXDoT Smith County maps.
Photographer's Note:
"The tower and church (above) are at least 4 miles down the road from the mapquest.com location of Walnut Grove. I searched and got directions from Whitehouse, to Walnut Grove. The Church and Water tower are located on North 756 / Paluxy Drive. Mapquest states taking a left on FM 756 from 344. The church and water tower are to the right on FM 756 from 344. If it is a different community, [the two are] only four miles apart." - Lori Martin
