Jefferson, Texas
This small town has earned a reputation as one of the favorite weekend getaways in North Texas, with its brick-lined streets, historic homes and Downtown shopping district.

Jefferson has a great history and its citizens have done a good job of making that history available to visitors. That history involves an important role in the Confederacy, and the unusual fact that this inland city was once one of the largest shipping terminals in the South.
