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

My favorite part of our trip to Jefferson, Texas was this tour! Don't miss it! Whether your into the paranormal or not, the house and it's history are enough alone to make the trip. The paranormal experiences and stories are the icing on the cake. The owner is a fabulous story teller! While I was there I purchased several of... More

We came here for a Ghost/House Tour. The owner of the house we found out to be the writer of several ghost story & cemetery books that we own. Great story teller.

The owner of this house is extremely knowledgable and fun to listen as he recounts stories about the haunted house in Jefferson that he actually lives in ! My husband felt a tight pressure around his body as he walked inside the house that subsided after a few minutes. A unique experience. He says his ghosts are friendly so not... More

My wife and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary in Jefferson Texas. We had a great time and loved all the things we did but most of all we loved seeing The Grove. Mitchell is a wonderful tour guide and he tells not just the history of his home but the history of Jefferson Texas in general. My wife... More

This tour was excellent. Lots of history to be learned about and very interesting stories by the current owner of the house. His home has been studied by paranormal investigators and psychics. Definitely worth the time to visit.

We really enjoyed getting to visit the Grove. The owner, Mitchel, is very well versed in the full history of the house, as well as the history of Jefferson. He is even a published author who has written and co-written many books about Jefferson and about the paranormal. Although we would have loved for the spirits to have shown up... More

I have been to the Grove tour home several times over the years. It is my favorite place to bring whoever visits Jefferson with me. The tour is full of great ghost stories and interesting history too. My favorite part is the end when I get to see if Mr. Whittington has written a new book for me to buy.... More
