The Jefferson Historical Museum recently moved into new
quarters in the former post office and federal building, built in

were honored at an appreciation dinner in the Excelsior Hotel
for their untiring service in the preservation of Jefferson history.
Many donors have contributed extensively to the restoration

a variety of rifles, Indian relics, a collection of Sam Houston
papers, and antiques including a desk which belonged to T. J.
