Roadside History: Ghost Town of Green Pond (Old Grove Barn)

Old Grove Barn

Old Grove Barn

In Polk County is the old community of Green Pond. The community began back in 1879 with The Green Pond Baptist church being founded there in 1890. The old church is gone and many of the old buildings but one of them still remains.

This structure was once the grove barn for the nearby citrus Grove. I found it on Green Pond Rd just before Green Pond Cemetery. It can be seen from the road and is a reminder of days gone by. I am not sure how old it is but if I can find out more information I’ll update this post. Check out these photos and my video for a good look at the place. If you are passing through this old community be sure to check out some of the roadside history!
