3 Things to Know About Big Cove

  • Big Cove was named by the town's first settler and permanent resident of the area, John Clan Grayson. It takes its name from the natural geographical features of the area.
  • It was initially a farming town, growing major cash crops of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including cotton, corn and soybeans. The modern era has seen many of these old family plots sold out and turned to subdivisions, however.
  • Big Cove is bordered by Huntsville to the North and the town of Owens Cross Road to the south. The majority of the community shares a zip code with Owens Cross Road. But the northern part of the community, which is known by locals as the "upper end," shares its zip code with the city of Brownsboro.
