Nearby Jefferson Makes the List of ‘Top 15 Small Towns In Texas’
Towns on the list include those legendary tiny Texas spots like Wimberly, Goliad and Luckenbach and the lesser known locations of Salado and Canyon. But on the list of 'Top 15 Small Towns in Texas', there is one less than an hour from Shreveport / Bossier, and that's historic Jefferson.
Originally a major port town for travel on the Red River, changes in the direction and depth of the waterway made river travel impossible. Now, with a population of just over 2,000, Jefferson attracts a bevy of visitors with antique shops, hotels and fine restaurants.
