Jefferson was once a major river port en route to New Orleans. Today, you can relive city history on a tour by boat, horse and carriage, or on foot after dark. Take the Historic Jefferson Ghost Walk on Friday and Saturday nights, where resident historian Jodi Breckenridge recounts tales of murder and intrigue at the Oakwood Cemetery and other spooky sites. By day, head to the dock for a Turning Basin Riverboat Tours to learn about Jefferson’s steamboat history. Fans of Margaret Mitchell’s classic shouldn’t miss a trip to the small Gone With the Wind museum loaded with costume reproductions, movie posters, and select book additions.
