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!

I felt really lucky to be able to witness and step inside such a beautiful home. Mitchel shared the history of the home along with some of the ghostly encounters. Great experience!

We've been to a few "haunted" places. I'd have to say this was the least interesting one I've been through. The owner is very knowledgeable of the history of the house, but not so much as to why it's haunted. He was very enthusiastic with...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
