Jackson, Mississippi

building in Jackson

Jackson is the capital of Mississippi and its largest city. Jackson is located in Hinds County which is the most populated county in Mississippi. Jackson is in central Mississippi and is nearly equidistant to Memphis, Tennessee and New Orleans, Louisiana. The City of Jackson was founded in 1821 at the site of a trading post situated on a bluff on the west bank of the Pearl River. Legend tells that the trading post was operated by a French-Canadian trader named Louis LeFleur, and the town originally was called LeFleur's Bluff.

Jackson has had a long and turbulent history in the struggle for civil rights for African Americans. However, today Jackson has elected two African American Mayors (current mayor Harvey Johnson and the late Frank Melton) and recently Hinds County elected an African American Sheriff for the first time in history. In spite of its past Jackson has matured and has developed into a vibrant, lively city for all its residents
