Port of Jefferson Riverfront Restoration Project Has Begun!!

January 20th, 2012 by carriagehouse

Port of Jefferson Boat RampTrees

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was so excited to hear the news this week that the highly anticipated Port of Jefferson Riverfront Project had begun this week.  The heavy equipment was delivered on Wednesday and work began in earnest on Thursday.  Woo Hoo!

This project has been in the works for decades and is something that we have needed for generations.  The Big Cypress Bayou area has been altered and degraded from hundreds of year’s of boats and man’s influence. Many of the native species of plants  have died out and native animals no longer come to the shores of the water or are even in this area.  This project will return this wetland back to it’s original state and re-introduce many of the trees, plants, animals, and fish that once populated this unique swampy area of Texas.  The Army Corps of Engineer’s estimate the entire project to take anywhere from 18 months to 2 year to complete.

For more information about this project, please visit the project website at http://portjeffersonrestoration.com/.

Please enjoy this video of the first day’s work.  The first work effort of the project is to move the current boat ramp (located at the Polk St bridge) down Austin Street right next to the Historic Jefferson Railway depot.

I hope you enjoy this update!  I will be making more as the project moves forward and milestones are achieved.

Mardi Gras – Jefferson Style

January 11th, 2012 by carriagehouse

It is hard to believe but Mardi Gras is only but a few weeks away and Jefferson is already getting it’s green, gold, and purple on.  Even the Carriage House is decorated in it’s holiday finery!

Jefferson, Texas being an old riverport town where paddlewheelers out of New Orleans would dock, has it’s very own Krewe…the Krewe of Hebe.   Mardi Gras will be a weekend of parades, live music, and parties.

If you need something to whet your appetite for all of this year’s fun, check out the video from last year’s Mardi Gras Upriver above.

Video of Haunting and Mysterious Caddo Lake

January 5th, 2012 by carriagehouse

So the video creating kick is still going on here at The Carriage House Bed and Breakfast.  Yesterday I created a video of the New Year’s Eve Ball at Jefferson’s Carnegie Library.  Today, I spent all morning working on a video showcasing the beautiful and ethereal Caddo Lake.    I hope y’all enjoy all of the amazing photography!!

A Novel “House of the Seasons”

October 18th, 2011 by carriagehouse

House of the Seasons

The House of the Seasons

Written by: Richard Collins, T.J. Kuenster, and Dan Kuenster

Illustrated by: Dan Kuenster

Published by: House of the Seasons

Sale price: $10.95

www.houseoftheseasons.com

The House of the Seasons is pleased to announce the publication of its first historical photographic illustrated novel, The House of the Seasons. The novel was co-authored by Richard Collins, Dan Kuenster, and T.J. Kuenster.

Richard Collins, a Texas entrepreneur, is president of the House of the Seasons and CEO of istation, an interactive education company in Dallas. Dan Kuenster is an Emmy-award winning animator and the Executive Vice President of Art and Animation at istation. T. J. Kuenster is the Musical Director of the Glen Campbell Band and is a well-known songwriter. His credits include original songs on the soundtracks for the Don Bluth animated films All Dogs Go to Heaven and Rockadoodle.

The House of the Seasons centers around Jeannie Epperson, the daughter of the home’s builder, Benjamin Epperson, a prominent lawyer, entrepreneur, railroad man, and political leader.

The novel tells the haunting story of Jeannie’s childhood and her friendship with a ghost during the time of the Civil War. Soon after Jeannie’s birth, her mother dies. Jeannie’s Aunt Agatha, an old maid of twenty-four, comes to take care of the child. An old friend, Texas Ranger Edward Hamilton, leaves the Rangers to work for Mr. Epperson and falls in love with Agatha. The Civil War brings tragedy to the family, and it changes their lives.

The story is based on historical facts and characters. It weaves together several true events from the history of the home. One of the important characters in the book is Sadie, Jeannie’s cat, her loyal friend and companion. Sadie lives at the House of the Seasons today and is beloved by all the guests who visit the home.

The House of the Seasons is a wonderful story for children of all ages from 6 to 86. The authors will be in Jefferson the last two weekends in October to sign first editions of the novel. The book is on sale at Beauty and the Book, the House of the Seasons, and several locations around Jefferson, for $10.95.
