As you drive or stroll through the streets of Jefferson, you will see that many of Jefferson’s beautiful homes date back to the mid 1800s. Many are well maintained and restored back to near-original condition. Jefferson’s residential streets in the older sections of town are lined with mature trees. They provide a breathtaking show of colors as the seasons change. 

Jefferson may be growing, but it hasn’t outgrown its small town charm. New homes and subdivisions have developed on the northwest, northeast and southeast sides of Jefferson to accommodate the city’s growing population.

Yet, it still has the serene and tranquil atmosphere of a small country town.
