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!

This was an interesting visit with the owner of the home who recounted its renovation and shared stories of events experienced by himself and others. The homeowner, Mitchel Whittington, is an excellent storyteller and is a published author.

The owner of the house is not only a gifted writer but a gifted story teller. We enjoyed every story about the history of this house especially the "haunting" stories. If you like history and ghosts this IS for you. Make sure you make reservations...More

We recommend the tour for ages 10 and above, not because of the ghost stories, but because of the history. Adults LOVE the history of the house, which include a few love stories, but kids can get bored and restless during... More
