At the turn of the 21st century, members of the Jefferson County Historical Society collected pictures and related stories of significant local history and turned them into an educational coloring book.  With the permission of Dorothy Puckett, the complete book has been reproduced for the enjoyment and education of children of all ages.  Just click here, read the stories, and print the pictures for coloring.
