In celebration of Flag Day, the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 and inspired by three decades of state and local celebrations, The Historic Jefferson Railway will offer a special Flag Day Weekend, June 10 and 11, 2011. Every rider will receive a free Flag Day gift and active Military Personnel can ride free.

Looking for a place close to town to camp or bring your RV? Come stay at the Cypress Bayou RV Park, just one mile from Jefferson, adjacent to the Cypress Bayou River. The park offers secluded tent camping and RV sites with water and electric surrounded by beautiful wooded acreage. Observe the abundant wildlife and enjoy great fishing and boating, as well as hiking and mountain biking on groomed trails.

We will have a celebration of flags at the historic train depot and along the track as the history of Flag Day unfolds in our narrated day tours. Come see the “Support Our Troops” display that honors the United States Military.

Climb aboard as the Railway recreates the Golden Era of steam railroading. With whistles blowing and pistons chugging, the live steam, narrow gauge railroad transports its passengers back to the 1800’s on a scenic narrated tour along the Big Cypress Bayou, rolling through the history laden Piney Woods.

You can view a Confederate Powder Magazine along the five-mile tour as well as the historical ruins of the Clark and Boice Sawmill and the first iron foundry in East Texas.

Start Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00 with free Ghost Stories at the historic “haunted” train depot. The story-teller will keep you at the edge of your seat as you hear stories about famous and not-so-famous Ghosts of Jefferson and Northeast Texas.

Then climb aboard the legendary Ghost Train at 9:00. The Ghost Train carries you deep into the dark woods along the Bayou. The narrator shares legends of Jefferson and East Texas ghosts and a story or two that will make you reach for your loved ones! Historic Jefferson Railway was nominated as one of the Best Excursion Railroad Theme Trains for its Ghost Train by the readers of Cowcatcher magazine for the First Annual 2009 Gold Rail Awards.

The Railway has become a part of the thriving community of Jefferson sponsoring major events throughout the year that bring over 20,000 visitors to Jefferson. Riders look forward all year to Terror on the Bayou Fright Train, Rail of Lights Christmas & New Year’s Train as well as Diamond Don’s Riverport National Vintage Motocross and the Trammel’s Trace Rendezvous.

The train was built in 1964 for Six Guns Territory in Florida and moved to Jefferson in 1986. It is a Crown Metals reproduction of the 1870’s American class 4-4-0 steam locomotive christened the Robert E. Lee and known as Engine #7. The open car coach seats still carry the custom medallions cast into them designed especially for the Six Guns amusement park.

Historic Jefferson Railway is located at 400 E. Austin in Downtown Jefferson, Texas. For information on pricing, schedule and events, please visit http://www.jeffersonrailway.com/or call 866-398-2038.

Images from Pilgrimage and the Battle of Port Jefferson

May 10th, 2011 by carriagehouse

This past weekend was Jefferson’s 64th Annual Pilgrimage and Re-enactment of the Battle of Port Jefferson.  Our Battle of Port Jefferson re-enactment is the largest Civil War re-enactment in the State of Texas.  The weekend kicks off with four of our historic homes opening for tour.  This year, we had a wonderful assortment of homes in different styles and architectures.

The Angel Rose House

 This was one of my favorite homes on tour and for a very unique reason.  It is the sister house to the Carriage House Bed & Breakfast.  I need to do much more research but I think these two historic homes must have a shared history.  I walked through this house and marveled at how the layout matched my own house.  I walked away with a ton of new ideas.  The Angel Rose house was also built in 1920 and is a Craftsman kit house ordered out of the Sears and Roebuck catalog for $900.  The home has had many additions added to it over it’s years and has been fully restored all the way to traditional Craftsman paint colors.

 This amazing home is a beautiful example of a classic Southern Colonial Greek Revival home.  This property sat empty for many years and was purchased last year and is in the process or being restored.  Only the carriage house and the pool house were on tour this time since they are the only structures that have been completed.  The main house is still very much a work in progress.  These beautiful buildings sit on a large piece of land that used to be a cotton and pecan plantation.

This home built in 1852 is one of the oldest homes in Jefferson and was built by one of the of the original founders of Jefferson, Allen Urquhart.  The rest of the house (three front rooms) was added in 1855 by a local merchant by the name of William Clark (hence the name, William Clark House).  I loved the sunny yellow paint that many of the rooms were painted in. It gave the entire house a cheerful feel to it.

This is one of the grandest homes in Jefferson filled with amazing art and priceless antiques.  This home was built by Col. David Browning Culberson who is famous for many things including defending Abe Rothschild at the Diamond Bessie Murder Trial.  This house is another example of the traditional southern architecture of the time, Greek Revival, and was inspired by a Greek Temple.

The home tour was not the only thing going on in town this past weekend.  The town was full of Civil War re-enactors trying to recreate life in 1864.  Entire families were living in tents set up in various parks and lots throughout town.  Not only did they dress in traditional Civil War garb, but they fully immersed themselves in the lifestyle of the time.

Riverport Ambassadors at the Pilgrimage Parade

One of the fun events of the weekend is the annual Pilgrimage parade Saturday morning.  Tom and I are members of a local tourism organization called the Riverport Ambassadors.  We dress up in period dress and assist the tourists on weekends.  We do step on bus tours, and educate the public on Jefferson’s colorful past.  Like many local organizations, we participate in the Pilgrimage parade.  You can’t see me real well, but that’s me in the middle in the sea foam green dress with the black parasol.

Civil War Skirmish on Austin Street

The parade ends with a gun battle and a skirmish in our beautiful Historic Riverfront District before the Civil War heads out to the battlefield set up at Tuscumbia Ranch.  In addition to all of these fun activities, we also have a quilt show, an heirloom plant sale, an art show, the Grande Hertiage Southern Ball, the Great Locomotive Chase, the Diamond Bessie Murder Trial play, and evening Twilight Garden Strolls.

Friday the 13th – Spooky Ride on the Historic Jefferson Railway

May 10th, 2011 by carriagehouse

Ghost Train

Photo by Sam Wilson

The Historic Jefferson Railway is offering a special Friday the 13th Ghost Train at 9:00 pm. Keep a wary eye toward the cypress-filled woods and swamps. You never know what lurks in the shadows. Something sinister is hiding there. You know something is going to reach out and touch you — you just don’t know where or when. You’ll be spooked by more than ghosts!

Bigfoot (also known in these parts as the Boggy Creek monster) has been sighted running along the railroad tracks as the sun begins to set. Is the tale of the Bigfoot sightings fact or fiction?

The Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy website says “Jerry Hestand, Mark Porter and Charles DeVore investigated a number of cases in Marion County from reliable trustworthy people in or near these remote bottomlands. It is their assessment that it seems highly likely that events have been reported accurately”.

The train rolls right by the home of the Boggy Creek monster as depicted in the upcoming horror movie, “Boggy Creek”, filmed in Jefferson and Uncertain. The movie is loosely based on the old Big Foot or Sasquatch legends, says Brian T. Jaynes, director and producer.

So, are the sightings real or a spoof to enhance your rider experience? You’ll have to ride the train to find out!

The Historic Jefferson Railway recreates the Golden Era of Steam railroading with narrated day trains on Saturday at 2:30 and 4:30. Steam hissing, whistle blowing and pistons chuggin, Old Engine #7 will take you on a scenic trip along the Big Cypress Bayou. As you roll through the history laden Piney Woods, you’ll view a Confederate Powder Magazine and traverse the site of one of the oldest, historical towns in Texas.

Start Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00 with free Fireside Ghost Stories at the historic “haunted” train depot. The story-teller will keep you at the edge of your seat as you hear stories about famous and not-so-famous Ghosts of Jefferson and Northeast Texas.

Then climb aboard the legendary Ghost Train at 9:00. The Ghost Train carries you deep into the dark woods along the Bayou. The narrator shares legends of Jefferson and East Texas ghosts and a story or two that will make you reach for your loved ones! Historic Jefferson Railway was nominated as one of the Best Excursion Railroad Theme Trains for its Ghost Train by the readers of Cowcatcher magazine for the First Annual 2009 Gold Rail Awards.

Historic Jefferson Railway presents The Great Locomotive Chase – The Andrews Raid

April 29th, 2011 by carriagehouse

Robert  E Lee

 

The Historic Jefferson Railway captures the spirit of the Civil War during Pilgrimage Weekend in Jefferson on May 6 and 7 by telling the story of the Great Locomotive Chase. Come ride the authentic 1870’s replica steam train and hear the gripping tale of The Andrews Raid, the Civil War’s most fascinating railroad story.

Steam hissing, whistle blowing and pistons chugging, Old Engine #7 known as The Robert E. Lee, will take you on a scenic trip along the Big Cypress Bayou. As you roll through the history laden Piney Woods, you’ll view a Confederate Powder Magazine and traverse the site of one of the oldest, historical towns in Texas. Come see the Living History Camps along the track.

During the Civil War, famous campaigns were planned and conducted for the primary purpose of capturing or destroying railroad lines of value to the enemy. On the morning of April 12, 1862, the most famous locomotive of the Civil War, The General, was hijacked by the Union civilian spy, James J. Andrews, and his men. After a nail-biting eight hours and 87 miles, the Southerners captured The General, James Andrews and several of his men.

This special event offers a great educational opportunity for school groups on Friday, May 6, with runs at 9:30, 11:30 and 1:30. The public is welcome to attend. Train rides are also available on Saturday, May 7, at 12:30, 2:30 and 5:30.

On Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00, a Civil-War themed Fireside Ghost Stories will take place at the Historic “haunted” Depot. And best of all, it is FREE.

Then jump on the Historic Jefferson Railway’s famous Ghost Train at 9:00 p.m. to discover the haunts of the Civil War. The trip takes you deep into the dark and scary Piney Woods of East Texas. Listen to the narrator tell Civil War ghost stories while you keep an eye out for paranormal activity.

Historic Jefferson Railway is located at 400 E. Austin, Jefferson, TX. For more information, contact info@JeffersonRailway.com, visit http://jeffersonrailway.com/, or call 866-398-2038.
