The chapter was founded as Paintedvale in 2009 by Tiril and was populated by students from the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. The group enjoyed a good run for a few years, before officially being declared defunct by Goldenvale, their sponsoring Kingdom, in December of 2011. The chapter restarted in June of 2012 as a freehold by Drayden, Candide Coating, Kelrick, Fleuric, Zeldon, and Tiril. In 2012 Painted Vale changed its name via Althing to 'Empire's Grove'.
As of June 2013 Empire's Grove is again sponsored by the Kingdom of Goldenvale. In November 2014 Empire's Grove became a Barony, and in May 2016 were elevated to Duchy. In February 2018 Empire's Grove voted via allthing to become a Barony
In 2017 the park voted to update our heraldry with the colors of our late park member, Raven Sellsword.
