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!

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!

We took the 1:00 PM tour on a Saturday. The house was charmingly maintained and decorated with lovely antiques, some dating back to the 1700s. The owner took us through the history of several rooms and included multiple accounts of ghostly activity that occurred here....More

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

The Grove's owners are full of historical information, not only about their beautiful home, but Jefferson. Mr. Whitington was a most gracious guide & very pleasant to listen & learn from. We thoroughly enjoyed to tour & have many of his books!

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
