Learn about Thomas Jefferson and see a model train layout that is so massive it requires its own building!

The Old Marion County Courthouse was constructed from 1888 - 1990 and was still used for that purpose until 1961. Jefferson Historical Society bought the building in 1965 to be used as a permanent location for the Jefferson Historical Museum. This collection is extensive and covers items and materials that help to preserve the history of Jefferson's important role in the development of Texas and the Southwest, along with other aspects of his life. Local history is also an important part of the museum collection.

Guests will find books, pamphlets, maps, portraits, genealogies, paintings, and journals when they come. There are early pioneer implements, a classic gun collection, plus art and antiques. Be sure to look at the model train arrangement; it has such attention to detail that you'll have to see to believe. The model train is so big that is housed in its own building. The layout you will see represents Texas during the 1950s. Jefferson Historical Museum is open daily from 9:30 am - 4:30 pm.
