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!

Have taken the tour of The Grove at least 3 times. It's fun and very informative. My husband had not been on the tour so we went over the weekend when we in town. Mitchel knows his history and he makes the tour very fun. Suppose to be a haunted home, but never had anything happen while we were there.

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
