A one-hour tour of one of Jefferson's most historic - and haunted - locations. The Grove is an 1861 home that uniquely mirrors the history of the riverport city... and the ghost stories there go back over 100 years. The history of the home is fascinating; it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark. Along with the history, though, you'll hear ghost stories from the owners and find out just what it's like to live in a haunted home. Come visit The Grove for a peek into Jefferson's past... and a few residents who may still be hanging around!

If you are visting Jefferson, take the time to tour of "The Grove." Mitchel shares the history of the town (and the Grove) and you see Jefferson in a new light. He also spends time talking about ghosts and sharing his and others encounters. It satisfies both the history buff and the paranormal enthusiast. It's well worth the visit. We... More

The owner is very friendly and great at telling us the history and stories. The home has a very rich history and the ghost stories are very interesting. I took a... More

Very interesting place - the owner of the house is a great storyteller. Very passionate about the history of the house. Enjoyed listening to all the information and touring the home. Very inexpensive - appreciate the opportunity to see part of this historic home.

Visiting The Grove was a treat! The owner of the house is not only an author of several books and great story teller, but he's approachable, likeable, great host. We're ghost hunters and I was thrilled to see thru my lens a bright blue orb slowly circle his leg and follow him to another room. I highly recommend it.

Mitch was quite entertaining and a wonderful story teller. We enjoyed hearing about the history of the home, its hauntings, and the experiences of others who visited. If you are lucky like we were, something special may come your way!

Mitchel Whitington(homeowner)gave a very enlighting and warm tour of his private home.It shows how much he and his wife love their old manor. You gotta call for tour hours.Its worth every penny of the $6 it cost.

For our trip to Jefferson, I researched places to see while in Jefferson and this was a must see. I called and made a reservation weeks in advance for a Sunday 11am tour. Several people were there too and it made for a good ghost history tour of the house. Our host Mitchel made the tour fun and educational. He... More
