People Will Drive From All Over Texas To The Jefferson General Store For The Nostalgia Alone
Small towns in Texas are rife with nostalgia, and Jefferson is no exception. This charming East Texas community is where you’ll find the Jefferson General Store, a circa-1860 building filled with all sorts of trinkets from the past. You’ll see an old-time candy counter, antiques, a working jukebox, and even a soda fountain where you can enjoy a root beer float or ice cream sundae. What a delicious blast from the past!
