“History”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Awesome place to visit, it's an old collage and it was used in THE NORTH AND THE SOUTH as WEST POINT. If you come to town you need to see this

“Special Events Were Awesome”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Visited during a special event with reenactors, period sutlers, lectures and tours of the facility. It was very educational and fun to visit and see the demonstrations. Jefferson College any time of the year is a step back into history especially for those who follow military history.

“Very neat historic area. Worth the stop.”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

It is very interesting to see this old school and grounds. Have to say though that I went because of seeing it on The North and The South. It is The movie set for West Point for George and Ory.
