Jefferson Park started off as a wealthy neighborhood. It had trolley cars moving down Adams and Jefferson boulevards by 1903.
The flatter parts along the latter saw the development of a low-rise commercial district. Afterward, the blocks behind this had small single-story houses and low-rise apartment structures added to them.
Jefferson Park’s 1.42 square-mile area had 23,130 people living in it when the 2000 census was conducted. That put the average at 16,300 people for each square mile, which was one of the highest in the entire city. The median annual household income calculated in 2008 was $32,654, which was a lot lower than most other neighborhoods in the county. The share of households making $20,00 or lower was very high in relation to the remainder of the county. The average household size was 2.8 people.
Among the attractions which draw tourists to this place are Auguste R. Marquis Residence and Trinity Baptist Church. The former is a Queen Anne-style building constructed in 1904, which is also among the cultural monuments of the city. It was featured in the TV series Six Feet Under. Trinity Baptist Church is stated at 2040 W. Jefferson Boulevard, and was designed by famed architect Paul Williams. Other than that, there is also The First African Methodist Episcopal Church, which is seen as the spiritual heart of the county. This church too was designed by Paul Williams.
