6th Annual Train Days Held

The 2017 Train Days event was held in downtown Jefferson in partnership with several other organizations. The Jefferson and Cypress Bayou Model Railroad Club hosted the train show and demonstrated the R.D. Moses model train housed at the JHSM.  

Above is this year's winner of Don Troiani's print, "General Cleburne at Chickamauga", Karla McDonald Jones.  She was excited! 

The 2017 Civil War Symposium (CWS) was extraordinary. The speakers were outstanding, the exhibits and vendors superb, food was excellent at the Speakers' Reception and lunch the following day.

The Museum has posted outside the front door on the fence the iTour sign which allows visitors access by their phones access to our website.  You will see many of these around town on historical sites.

A new book released in August by the JHSM is available for purchase in the gift shop.  Three members of the JHSM Board researched and wrote "A History of the Jewish Citizenry in Jefferson, Texas" using the archives of the museum as the source.
