Texas Attractions: Historic Jefferson

Posted on: January 3rd, 2013 by admin No Comments

Every nook and corner of the great state of Texas is filled with delights. A place that emphatically illustrates the truth of this sentiment is Jefferson, a historic town containing a treasure trove of attractions, located amidst the tall pines of East Texas.

Take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage, cruise down the river in a steam-paddle boat or visit the antique shops lining streets that are paved with the original brick. Stop for an ice cream soda at City Drug Co., an establishment in continuous operation since 1953 that has an old fashioned soda fountain. Also, while downtown, don’t miss the fudge store, the Christmas store and an intriguing sounding shop entitled “Granny Had It.”

The attractions include several unique museums, one of which is called Scarlet O’Hardy’s Gone with the Wind Museum, a facility with a large collection of Old South memorabilia from this epic story. Other particularly interesting museums include one devoted to vintage cars and another to the area of measurement and time.
