The Grove was a modest cotton plantation located in central Leon County, Florida and established by Richard Keith Call in the 1830s. Richard Keith Call was also owner of Orchard Pond Plantation located in Tallahassee, Florida.
In 1942, The Grove and its history passed to Mary Call Darby Collins and became the home of the late Gov. LeRoy Collins and his wife, Mary, great-granddaughter of Call. The Collinses sold the home and remaining land to the state for eventual use as a museum. LeRoy Collins is buried at The Grove Cemetery.
