Things To Do and See in Historic Jefferson Texas
Jefferson, the county seat of Marion County, is located on Big Cypress Creek and Caddo Lake at the junction of U.S. Highway 59 and State Highway 49. Founded in the 1840s and named for Thomas Jefferson, the town established itself as one of the largest river ports in Texas. As the primary entry point for settlers, immigrants and supplies, the city quickly earned the nickname “Queen of the Bayou”.

Today, Jefferson is also known as “The Bed & Breakfast Capital of East Texas” and entertains a global visitor base. Boasting nearly 70 entries on the National and Texas Register’s of Historic Places, a Carnegie Library, Historical Museum, ghost walks, historic home tours and a local railway, Jefferson is a celebrated, year-round destination for tourists.
