You can hear the influence in his music from these talented musicians. A few of his songs will bring a hint of Kenny Chesney to the forefront.

Come and enjoy some great music, vendors and friends for the evening.  The Beer Garden will be open to provide refreshments during the concerts. Everyone is welcome and The Beer Garden is open to 21 over only.

The support of City of Jefferson Office of Tourism and Merchants makes this weekend a success. Save the date for the Rally on June 6-8, 2014 at Diamond Don’t RV Park in Jefferson.  This event will offer something for everyone, whether you come on a bike, in the Rally bus or in your car.

Jefferson Civil War Days

April 10th, 2014 by carriagehouse

Civil War
The Great Locomotive Chase – The Andrews Raid & Naval Battle of Port Jefferson

The Historic Jefferson Railway captures the spirit of the Civil War during Pilgrimage & Civil War Weekend in Jefferson, May 3 and 4, 2014, by recreating the battle of the Great Locomotive Chase with soldiers, sailors and Marines from the North and South.  The living history camps along the Big Cypress Bayou come alive as the cannons fire and the battle rages to gain possession of the train.  The gripping tale of The Andrews Raid is the Civil War’s most fascinating railroad story.

The Great Locomotive Chase and Naval Battle of Port Jefferson will be held on Saturday, May 3, with trains departing from the Historic Jefferson Railway in downtown Jefferson at 12:00, 1:00, 2:00 and 7:00 and Sunday, May 4 at 11:30.  Ticket price is $15 Adults; $12 Children under 12; 10% senior and active military discount.  Lap children under 4, free.   A portion of each ticket will be donated to the Marion County Chamber of Commerce.  We will have ticket sales online within the next few days, or call Melissa for reservations. 903-742-2041.

Friday, May 2, 2014

Friday is a day of learning for school groups, sponsored by the Marion County Chamber of Commerce, to draw attention to the history and romance of the Civil War way of life.  The Living History Camps will demonstrate Camp Life and Military Activities and includes a train ride aboard the Historic Jefferson Railway as the story of The Andrews Raid unfolds alongside the Big Cypress Bayou.  See a gunboat with real live cannon fire.

Price for Living History is $3 per student; train ride is $5 per student.  School groups – reserve now.  Call Melissa for reservations. 903-742-2041.

On Saturday, May 3 and Sunday, May 4, 2014 The Naval Battle of Port Jefferson joins the skirmish as a replica ironclad gunboat, the Virginia, fires from cannons on the banks of the Big Cypress Bayou River.  This is the largest naval civil war re-enactment west of the Mississippi and will be represented by US Naval Landing Party, Western Gulf Squadron, as well as a contingent of SeaScouts from Baytown, Texas.
See a Civil War Naval Unit that shows a seldom seen side of the Civil War.  Naval Forces were a pivotal part of the war.  As Naval Living Historians, the Squadron shows the true side of Naval and Marine life on both sides of the war, demonstrating how they dressed, lived and fought during the 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.
The Merrimack was a Union cruiser, captured by the South in Norfolk Virginia, and renamed the Virginia.  The Jefferson Battle that Never Was will feature the Virginia, fighting from the banks of the river, while the Navy landing party, Marines and soldiers fight to capture the train.
Experience a true civil war naval battle aboard the Historic Jefferson Railway, the only venue available to see this re-enactment.  Reminiscent of the landing parties that aided the regular land forces, from both above and below the Mason-Dixon Line, it will be a unique experience.  Keep your seat on the train as the battle takes place on both sides of the track and from the gunboat in the river.
Take a step back in time as the Historic Jefferson Railway takes you on an excursion that circles the Piney Woods along the scenic Big Cypress Bayou.  You’ll view a Confederate Powder Magazine from the Civil War era and remains of many sites from the 1800′s still visible along the track.  The train will stop about half-way for the Naval Battle of Port Jefferson.  The antique train is a restored gas-powered Plymouth Locomotive built in 1964.  The open-canopied observation cars provide an excellent view of this exciting event along the river.

Navy Battle re-enactors can camp free at Diamond Don RV Park with lots of space, trees and plenty of amenities for re-enactors, including water, hay, split wood, restrooms and showers.  Lunch on Saturday and Sunday will also be provided to the re-enactors.  Transportation will be available from the RV Park to other events in town. Limited RV sites with water and electric are available to re-enactors in the Navy Battle at no charge. First come, first served.  Call Melissa for reservations. 903-742-2041.

See all of the Jefferson Civil War activities at www.JeffersonCivilWarDays.com The Historic Jefferson Railway train rides and battle have been arranged so that you can participate in the other major events in Jefferson, too.

As Seen on on Channel 3 in Shreveport

December 3rd, 2012 by carriagehouse

A few weeks back, I was proud to have Bob Griffin, his beautiful wife Denise, and their dog Sport come and spend a few days with me here at the Carriage House.  For those of you not in the Shreveport TV air space, Bob is the weekend anchor on KTBS, Channel 3.  Before his tenure with Channel 3, he was with KSLA Channel 12 also in the Shreveport area.

Bob never stops working and his passion for what he does was evident during his stay here.  He is a “news man” at his very heart.

He put together a 3 minute video on the Carriage House and all the things he enjoyed about his stay.  He was most impressed with our pet friendly accommodations and the fact that you can walk to just about anywhere from right here at the Carriage House.

I hope you enjoy this video. Here ya go!!!  Enjoy!!

The New Year’s Eve Door Prize…Whose raffle ticket is it?

January 3rd, 2012 by carriagehouse

 

Terry Ward

Guest Blog by Tom Lester

Happy New Year and Takk for Sist!!  May 2012 be prosperous beyond even your financial accomplishments.

I am not going to break away from the norm so I am once again going to brag about the terrific town of Jefferson .  There are so many parties and venues in and about Jefferson on New Year’s Eve, and we always find it difficult to choose how  to spend our last night of the year.  For the second year in a row my wife, Stephanie, and I attended the New Year’s Eve Gala at the Jefferson Carnegie Library.  It was a magical night of great music, dancing and friendship.  This is definitely one of the most enjoyable opportunities to see your friends and to meet new ones while bringing in the New Year.

The door prizes were excellent as well. Which brings me to the raffle and the question of the night…whose raffle ticket is it?

As part of the admission fee, everyone receives a raffle ticket. Two admission fees per couple so therefore two raffle tickets per couple. These raffle tickets potentially could win you fabulous prizes donated by local businesses.

When the first raffle number of the night was pulled, one of our two numbers was called.  Of course, immediately Stephanie claims it as hers. I have no idea how she thought that specific one was hers, the tickets were still attached together.  I had been eyeing all night a cask strength single malt scotch, donated by Tony and Marsha Jones. Stephanie, with HER ticket, saunters up to the to the prize table and informs me that my number had not been called yet.  Since we were the first chosen, we had first pick of the prizes.  She took the bottle from my cold dead hand, places it back on the table and chooses the original drawing by Terry Ward, a local accomplished artist.

She informs me the scotch will be drank within a very short period of time.  I agreed whole heartily with that statement.  However she informed me that Terry’s art work is one of a kind, dear to our hearts, and will be with us forever.  I love Terry,  but, FOREVER??  I guess it was Stephanie’s ticket after all and I gladly allowed her to pick the print by Terry Ward. Thank You Terry for your generosity and contributions to the Jefferson Carnegie Library and to the City of Jefferson.

BTW,  I’m  good friends with the person that won the scotch.Carnegie Library
