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

Mitch, his wife,and The Grove are not to be missed. You won't regret it! They even let me have pecans and a china pottery shard out of their yard ads a souvenir. This is a fabulous house w/fabulous history and very special owners.

The owner of the home and the tour guide is such a wonderful storyteller, which I think comes from his career as a writer, but also something deeply embedded in the culture of East Texas. Intricate historical details about all the previous owners, as well as information about the city and area itself, was just as fascinating as the ghost... More

We booked this tour right before we left. It is a "must see". The owner gave the tour. He and his wife are very comfortable with the "unusual" occurrences. He was enthusiastic and you could see he loved his home.
