Jefferson Reviews

Jefferson is a very small town which is great for building a family and retirees, but if you're looking for a place with nightlife, this isn't it. Jefferson does have history and lots of historical places to visit.

It is the most horrible place to live in. The whole city of Jefferson, Texas is unethical and immoral.
