“Close your eyes and picture the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words “small town.”
You probably saw a town square with lots of little shops like a general store, soda fountain, and maybe an antique store.
Most likely, you also thought about the friendly locals who seem to get more and more hospitable the smaller the town is.
These would all be correct visualizations – especially here in Texas. All of us natives know that the towns that truly represent what we stand for as a state usually don’t have more than about 10,000 people.
If you don’t believe me, visit one (or more) of the following 10 places and see for yourself just how nice the residents are and how slow-paced the living is.”- Katie Lawrence
In browsing on the internet this weekend, we stumbled onto this list from the website Only in Your State – http://www.onlyinyourstate.com/texas/peace-and-quiet-towns-tx/.
Jefferson is listed along with Brady, Wimberly, San Augustine, Alpine, Schulenburg, West, Canton, Nacogdoches, and Uncertain. So our little part of heaven was listed twice. Jefferson is denoted with a picture of the Jefferson General Store, while Uncertain is actually a picture of someone canoeing or kayaking on Caddo Lake.
