Teeds Grove is an unincorporated community in northeastern Clinton County, Iowa, United States. It lies at the intersection of Clinton County Routes E44 and Z50,[2] north of the city of Clinton, the county seat of Clinton County.[3] Its elevation is 692 feet (211 m).[1]

Teeds Grove (formerly Teed's Grove, with the apostrophe s) was named after the first settler of Elk River Township.[4]

Teeds Grove's post office has a complicated history. Established on 6 January 1873, its name was changed to Teeds on 21 June 1883 and changed back to Teeds Grove on 8 July 1904. The post office was ultimately discontinued on 2 July 1965, when it was attached to the Clinton post office.[5] Although its post office is gone, Teeds Grove retains its own ZIP Code, 52771.[6]
