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

I can't add anymore that anyone else hasn't already said.. The tour given by the owner of his own house was far more then I was expecting. The $6 charge per person is well, well worth the time.. The story Mitchel tells of the history of the house and the paranormal observations were great... We will go back again!

My family of four visited The Grove today. The owner and tour guide, Mitchel, is a gifted storyteller. We found his stories about the home's previous owners, sprinkled with facts about Jefferson's history, to be fascinating. He shared tons of examples of otherworldly experiences that had happened in his 1860 home. You can't miss this tour!

Excellent tour of a historic house, Mitchell is a great story teller, loaded with interesting facts, and a ton of research. This was not a haunted house tour that one would expect, it was a combination tour of this great old house, and excellent research and real ghost stories by the owners. Highly recommend that if you're in Jefferson, you... More
