Welcome to Jefferson County!
It is a great place to live, work, raise a family, and enjoy the outdoors. We are home to hard working, generous, neighborly people that look out for one another. We have coal, natural gas, metal manufacturing, and timber reserves that are the envy of others. We have direct access to global markets via highway, rail, and air. We have clean water, rolling hills, and 4 distinct seasons. The architecture and character of our “downtown areas” have a magical quality. We have great churches and civic organizations that are always there when one of us needs help. We have entrepreneurs that have built and grown unique and diverse businesses. We have a workforce that is unparalleled globally. We take pride in the jobs that we do, offer unique solutions when problems arise, work together for common goals, and learn new skills when given the opportunity. Our school systems are solid and consistently develop and educate great young men and women. We have lakes, streams, forests, farmland, and rails to trails. We have unique and diverse parks and green spaces. Everything you need for a great life and lifestyle is close to home or just a short drive away.
