Texas Travel :: The Jefferson General Store
Recently, I entered the Texas Forrest Trail Region's We Pine for East Texas photography contest. With over 300 beautiful entries, I was pretty sure my amateur photography skills didn't stand a chance. I was utterly surprised when I opened an email last week stating I had actually won a spot as honorable mention with my photo Way Back When taken in Jefferson, Texas at the Jefferson General Store.
The Jefferson General Store is a delightful step back into yester-year, featuring a fantastic old-fashioned soda fountain, a well-stocked candy bar, shelves filled with preserves, jams, snacks, salsa, honey and more. In addition, the General Store also sells clothing, toys, books and Texas souvenirs.
Located at 113 E. Austin Street, the Jefferson General Store is opened Sunday through Thursday from 9am until 6pm and Friday through Saturday from 9am until 10pm.
