Double Churches
The Dolet Hills or "Double Churches" community was organized by homestead settlers in the 1850's on a late 1700's Spanish Land Grant to Pierre Dolet. The Lord, Griffith and Pace families were among the earliest arrivals. There were many family homes, physicians, a school, a post office and two churches, Methodist and Baptist, which shared the cemetery. The building of the Grove Hill Baptist Church, organized April 3, 1859, and cemetery are all that remain of the viable community.
