Locust Grove Village was established in 1863 and is the oldest village in Pocopson Township, Chester County. In 1886, the population was 60 people. The village was the dream of businessman Pennock Marshall, who wanted to establish a settlement that would resemble William Penn's "Greene Country Towne". He laid out 3 streets in a stand of locust trees and planned 29 lots. Mr. Marshall was disappointed because the village never had more than two dozen families; however many of its buildings live on.
