Jefferson is a historic city located in northeastern Texas in Marion County. The population is around 2,000 residents. Called the "Riverport to the Southwest," Jefferson sits between Caddo Lake and Lake O' the Pines. Almost every house and commercial building on the main road through town has a historical marker. Jefferson dates to a time when steamboats traveled the Big Cypress River from the Port of New Orleans, and the city's rich heritage is still seen and felt today. Attractions in Jefferson include Jay Gould's Railroad Car, the Sterne Fountain, the Jefferson Carnegie Library, the Excelsior House, and the many bayous located in and around the city. Jefferson is a very walkable town; one can walk to the restaurants, coffee shops, museums, antique shops, parks, etc. You can take a riverboat ride along the river, travel on a 19th century steam-driven train, relax in a horse-drawn surrey, or explore the shops and museums on foot. At the end of the day, retire to a historic bed and breakfast inn. The city of Jefferson is well-known around the state as the "Bed and Breakfast Capital of Texas." Many say that Jefferson is "a town that time forgot." Nearby, Caddo Lake is a water garden with cypress trees, Spanish moss, bayous, lotuses and water lilies. Day and night tours of it are available. Lake O' the Pines is a lake that offers sailing, boating, fishing, water-skiing, camping, and hiking. Homes, marinas and restaurants line the shores of Lake O' the Pines.
