The Grove

The Grove in Jefferson was built in 1861 by Frank and Minerva Stilley. The home received one structural change in 1870 when a room was added to join the detached kitchen to the house and another change in the 1930’s when an indoor bathroom was added and the side porch enclosed. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the National Parks Service and has been designated a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark by the Texas Historical Commission.

The house has been said to be one of the most haunted locations in the Lone Star State. The ghost stories go back over 100 years. In 1882 T.C. Burke purchased the home but moved his family out of the house within a month’s time. The only explanation was, “We can’t live there…”

Take an hour-long excursion into the historic old home that has been called “the most haunted house in Jefferson.” You’ll hear the fascinating history of this 1861 house, along with the supernatural experiences of the owners, past and present.
