Overview
More
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!

We had an excellent tour of the old beautiful home. The owner lead the tour and was extremely knowledgeable about the property. We think we captured an apparition near the corner of the house!! A must see attraction in Jefferson!

Our host/tour guide, who lives in the house, was very engaging and extremely entertaining. He is an excellent storyteller and did a great job of painting the picture of life in the 1800's. Very good value for only $6.00!

The owner's of the Grove graciously open their home for tours. They give a lot of history about the previous owners and previous sightings. We didn't see any ghosts on our tour, but didn't really expect to (don't really believe in them). It was fun...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

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
