The proposed town of Traveller's Grove was planned by Colonel John Everett to be established at the junction of Old Lynchburg Road and the Taylor's Gap Roads in modern Earlysville. Four lots that were formally numbered but evidently unmarked by improvements of any kind were sold to Paul Apple, and subsequently underwent two further transfers before their history terminated. Soon after disposing of the environs of the proposed town, Everett moved to Cabell County.
Everett was succeeded in the possession of Traveller's Grove by James Kinsloving, Jr., in whose time the name of the area was changed to Pleasant Grove. In later years the locale was purchased by the Methodist churches of the adjacent circuit for a parsonage, and though held now by other hands it still goes in the neighborhood by that name.
