Trivia! With a current population under 3,000, it is difficult to envision Jefferson as the fifth largest city in Texas? That's ancient history when it became an accidental river port. The New Madrid, MO earthquake uprooted numerous trees that created a dam near Jefferson. Lookup "Red River Raft" that was destroyed by Army Corp of Engineers Captain Shreve (namesake of Shreveport, LA).
