A Word From Our President
Available for Purchse Now
Antebellum Jefferson, Texas -This is the story of the early citizens of Jefferson, Texas and is of interest to both local and state historians as well as to the many readers interested in capturing the flavor of life in old-time East Texas.
We are excited about our upcoming Christmas season in Jefferson. Preparations are fully underway for the 30th Candlelight Tour of Homes ®. The public is invited, without charge, to enjoy the Enchanted Forest of 100 evergreen trees on the Lions Park grounds all decked out for Christmas, and a wonderful Christmas music program at the First Baptist Church each evening of the Candlelight Tours. I know you will enjoy the special preparations that many in the City of Jefferson and in the case of the music, some from other towns, are engaged in, for your pleasure. There are a number of activities being planned such as the Christmas parade, being planned by other organizations here in Jefferson. I look forward to meeting you during the season!
With all good wishes,
Laura Omer Miller, President
Historic Jefferson Foundation
