Posted on: February 23rd, 2014 by Delta Street Inn

Red Chair 007 (2)Jefferson, Texas is host to many events throughout the year. Check their web sites for more information www.jefferson-texas.com or www.visitjeffersontexas.com. Red’s trip to Jefferson has ended too quickly but we are sending him off in grand style. It is Mardi Gras season and is one of the most festive events in Jefferson, Texas. The tradition started many years ago, when steamships came up Big Cypress Bayou from New Orleans, bringing with them Mardi Gras traditions and celebrations. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Red visits Jefferson, Texas

Posted on: February 21st, 2014 by Delta Street Inn

Red is photographed at the Sterne Fountain which was erected in 1913 in downtown historic Jefferson, Texas. The fountain has six different drinking outlets, two at each of three different levels: one for humans, one for horses, and one for dogs. The statue is of Hebe, the Greek Goddess of Youth. In the background is the Jefferson Carnegie Library. Built in 1907, it is one of four libraries in Texas, from the original 34, to currently operate as a library. Jefferson, Texas is also home to five museums and many shops and restaurants.

Posted on: February 20th, 2014 by Delta Street Inn

Red Chair 004This was Red Chair’s first trip to Texas and he was looking forward to seeing what this big state had to offer. Red met our Red Rocker couple on the front porch and instantly felt right at home.
Delta Street Inn is located in historic Jefferson, Texas in north east Texas. Jefferson is the bed and breakfast capital of Texas. During the mid 1860’s Jefferson was the second largest port in Texas. During the Civil War, Jefferson was protected because of their port and today many of the historic homes still stand. Some of these have been converted to bed and breakfast inns.
