Linden Grove was once a nationally designated historic place located at 1100 Grove Road in Castle Shannon, Pennsylvania, but the original building (circa 1872) was torn down and it was delisted on January 20, 2000.[1] The current building there is a more recent construction called "The Linden Grove Nightclub". The original "Linden Grove was built as an attraction to German picnickers, as were several other groves patronized by various ethnic groups. Wagons with benches met picnickers at the train station and took them to whichever grove catered to their nationality."[2][3]

The Linden Grove is currently a popular nightclub with live music and DJs depending on the night. A listing of current entertainment, the current menu, photos and an article outlining the history of the Linden Grove in more detail, can be found on their website at
