Hickory Grove is in Western York County ... there's not much to tell you ... population might be 500 now. It is a beautiful rural area ... off the beaten path ... what do you want to know about that area ... schools? jobs?? shopping?? It is located in York County and if you are purchasing a home you will have property tax annually as well as tax on your vehicle(s) annually.

If you could be more specific as there is not much to say about that area, other then it's country. If you plan on having cows ... they have a good slaughter house ... we've used them in the past.

I have been told that there are a lot of older homes, from the earily 1900. I like those types of homes. Do you know of the history of the area and the older homes? Tax wise, do you have a general idea what they are based on and how much for homes. Also crime in the area, any information on it?
Thank you for any help you can give me.

Have you been to Hickory Grove ... if not you really need to visit and look around. Sharon is 5 miles from Hickory Grove ... Filbert is 10 miles. All of that area is 'blink your eyes' and you will miss it ... Hickory Grove and Sharon are both incorporated townships so you would pay city (town) taxes (if you buy a home within the city limits) and county taxes ... Filbert is the home of our US Rep John Spratt ... it was disincorporated a few years ago.

Yes you will find plenty of old homes all over that area ... but their ancestors came over on the Mayflower. It's one of those 'you ain't from around here 'r you' places.

This attachment is the York County Government website ... when you open this ... click Online Services and the last item on the drop down menu is 'Rollback Tax Calculator' ... click on that and on the right side of the page you will see 2008 Millage rates and how to estimate real estate tax. Click on the 2008 millage rates and a page will open ... down at the bottom is the city levy rates including Hickory Grove. That is this year's info ... they won't post 2009 until after the first of the year.

York County Gov

The area is beautiful but you have to go to York, Clover or Blacksburg to shop. Blacksburg is easy access to I-85 which takes you north to Gastonia and Charlotte NC or south to Gaffney, Spartanburg SC.

Hickory Grove doesn't have it's own police department ... the York County Sheriff's Dept handles that area ... you can access the Sheriff's Dept from the York County Gov website and they may have crime statistics for that area. The only bank in Hickory Grove closed some time ago but I think Sharon still has one bank (not sure.)

The newspaper Enquirer Herald covers the news from Western York County. You can access the Lake Wylie and Rock Hill Herald from this page too.

Enquirer Herald

I am not trying to discourage you ... but if you haven't visited the area ... you really need to check it out.

Good luck!

Cool Hickory Grove

Hickory Grove is a sleepy town 15 min., from grocery shopping along with Walmart, Walgreens and fast food restaurants. We are also 50 min. to charlotte International Airport. Downtown Charlotte along with hospitals and doctors is about one hour away. We have excellent roads, little crime and if you are outgoing and wish to make friends prepare to do this in another town such as Lake Wylie where you can have a boat (public dock) and enjoy our wonderful climate. Lake Wylie is 30 min. away and has several decent restaurants.
