We did 4 guided tours in Jefferson and while they were all awesome, this one was my favorite. I loved hearing the history of the house and the feeling of happy spirits who are attached to it... more »
My best friend & visited the Grove a few years ago. My friend has always been a little more sensitive to things. She was fine before we went inside for the tour & about the time we got to the dining room she started to feel light headed. By the time we got to the kitchen she had to squat to the floor. Once we made it out of the house she sat on the porch steps for a bit & started to feel better. Mitchel & his wife were great hosts & we would love to come back for another visit.
Although it's been a couple years I wanted to let everyone that the tour of the Grove was awesome. Mitch was great and I too experienced the lady on the corner. I became very very warm like I was having a hot flash then cooled down when we moved on with the tour. This place is legit!
