History:  

CLARKS GROVE, a city in Bath Township, sections 34 and 35, was founded in 1890, ten years before the railway was built. Its name had been long borne by a grove a mile east of the present village, in which grove John Mead Clark settled "in the early days." It was incorporated as a village on February 27, 1920, and had a station of the Chicago and Northwestern Railway, sometimes listed as James. Its post office began in 1857 with Clark as postmaster.
