The Grove was built around 1857 by Colonel John Preston when he retired after 32 years as presiding judge of Washington County. The two-story brick house featured a wood framed porch and was designed in the Greek Revival style. Though extensively vandalized after its sale by Preston family heirs in 1972, the house has been carefully and extensively rehabilitated to house new offices of the Children’s Advocacy Center of Bristol/Washington County.
