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!

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

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

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.
