Old Jefferson Town is a unique collection of vintage buildings from different locations in the county. They are preserved as a historical town of early day Jefferson County settlements. Plans for the village of yesteryear began in 1967 when Jefferson County Historical Society accepted a gift of four and half acres from Bill and Betty Leech. In 1988, the Leeches donated another five acre tract for a native grass and wildflower prairie.
Old Jefferson Town was named from old-time references made regarding this county of Ol' Jefferson.
