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 visit The Grove yearly and always bring “First Timers”. We are never disappointed. Mitchel Whitington’s spell binding stories coupled with the history of The Grove and the town of Jefferson, makes this experience educational and entertaining. My only regret if you will, is that...More

Learned quite a bit of history. Good stories and beautiful home. They have done a good job with the furnishing and love that they do not overbook.

We really enjoyed The Grove! The history of Jefferson was very interesting and the "ghost stories" were an added bonus! Highly recommend.

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
