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 really enjoyed my recent tour of The Grove. I learned interesting history of not only the house, but the town of Jefferson! Mitchell is a fun host. I highly recommend it!

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.

The owner Mitchel Whitington was a fantastic and knowledgeable host. His tour had just the right mix of humor, history and hauntings. He loves and respects the residence and it is very obvious. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, my only regret is I didn't purchase...More

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

This was a very nice home with lots of history and it was very interesting to hear its history as well as it's haunted stories. The Whittingtons were great people.

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 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

Hi - thanks for your question. Probably the only obstacle would be the half a dozen steps on the front of the house. There are a number of photos on our website (just Google "The Grove - Jefferson") or online where you can... More
