Pine Grove Mills is located at the intersection of Route #45 West and Route #26 South. Thomas Ferguson, the founder, bought 321 acres of land for 300 pounds in gold and silver coins. In 1800, he dammed Slab Cabin Run and built the first of his mills. Local history says a grove of pine trees separating two of the early mills along the run provided the rest of the name. Today Pine Grove Mills is a small, close-knit community.
The town boasts a tavern, dairy store, post office as well as other local businesses, farms and an elementary school. An easy commute to State College and Penn State. Home to Penn State's Ag Progress Days in August every year.
