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.

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.

Jefferson, Texas groups partner for theatrical and artistic extravaganza

New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Jefferson, Texas…what do these fabulous cities have in common? Vibrant and diverse theatre! Arts on the Bayou, Jefferson’s First Annual Theatre Festival, debuts August 3, 4, 5 and 10, 11, 12, 2012 at the Transportation and Tourism Center in historic downtown Jefferson. For the first time four distinct theatre groups have joined forces to present a remarkable theatrical experience. Visual arts are represented, too, as four local artists exhibit their photography, sculpture, and painting. “The arts influence the fabric of community,” said Jefferson City Administrator Shawn Farrell. Formerly associated with Americans for the Arts and the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, Farrell praised the Jefferson groups for working collaboratively for a common cause.

The Excelsior House Players present The Gin Game by D.L. Coburn. This two person play with intense dialogue dives deep into the complicated world of aging and loneliness. The witty and loaded drama will surprise and challenge as Fonsia Dorsey and Martin Weller explain and defend the triumphs and tragedies of their lives, playing Friday, August 3 & 10 at 8pm.

The Glory Dayz Players reprise their beloved melodrama Bats in Your Belfries. This comedy features a cast of all ages. The audience may “boo” and “hiss” at the infamous villain, Jay Gould. The popular melodrama has been previously performed in Jefferson and will delight its audience once again. Come and support this Jefferson favorite playing Saturday, August 4 at 2pm and Saturday, August 11 at 8pm.

Sanctuary Players Theatre Company presents The Red Velvet Cake War by Jones, Hope and Wooten. When the Verdeen cousins get together, hearts break, laws are broken, and everybody laughs until it hurts. When a wager is made over who can bake the best red velvet cake, a hastily planned reunion is thrown together. As a looming tornado nears fictional Sweetgum, Texas, the surprise ending will make you wish the Verdeens were your own loyal and dysfunctional family. It plays Saturday, August 4 at 8pm and Saturday, August 11 at 2pm.

Every Seventeen Minutes the Crowd Goes Crazy! by Paul Zindel, also offered by Sanctuary Players Theatre Company, explores the negative ramifications of child abandonment. When a family of children is left unsupervised for an undetermined period of time, the children act out in a variety of ways. While some family members hope to support themselves by hosting parties for their peers, others hold out hope their desertion will soon end. This play explores the challenges young people face in the world and from pop culture. It features a cast of talented young people ages 10-20 from all over east Texas and plays Sunday, August 5 and 12 at 2pm.

The Opera House Theatre Players have produced entertaining musicals in Jefferson for 23 years. Their 2012 summer musical hit was Guys and Dolls (Jr), an American classic.
