Originally named "Alexandria", the city of Jackson, Tennessee was re-named in 1822 to commemorate General Andrew Jackson, war-hero and future U.S. President. Like other area towns, the growth and prosperity of Jackson was largely dependent upon the rail lines springing up across the land in the nineteenth century. It became known as a railroad center and a hub of culture, industry, and economy in Tennessee. By the 1830's, residents had constructed such monuments to civility and prosperity as a two-story brick courthouse, a post office, numerous lumber and gristmills, public schools, and gravel-paved roads. Approximately 60,000 residents call Jackson "home" today. While not large by metropolitan standards, the city has developed and maintains a thriving industrial base supported by area businesses with healthy and active civic participation. Approximately 110 industries contribute to the economy in Jackson. The list of local businesses runs the gamut of available goods and services, including cinema complexes, shopping centers, nightclubs, and restaurants. Civic and social organizations range from the VFW to the Boy and Girl Scouts. Sixteen denominations are represented by the community churches to support the spiritual needs of the community.

The terrain in and around Jackson, and west Tennessee in general, is comprised of gently rolling land with picturesque hills and valleys. Jackson is a benefactor of the climate of the American South. Summertime is not limited by the calendar; swimming days come in early to mid-May and last into October. Gardeners appreciate the long growing season, which stretches from late March into mid-November and consists of an average of 236 frost-free days. Spring comes earlier in the South bringing glorious greening to the abundance of foliage in Tennessee. Fall stays later, extending warm days and crisp nights, all with a backdrop of the colorful changing of the leaves. Winters are mild and relatively short with little or no snow. Precipitation comes mostly as rainfall, but a surprise cold snap could allow someone to awaken to an unexpected blanket of nighttime snowfall. The city of Jackson operates several parks, some with lighted tennis courts, baseball/softball fields, soccer fields, nature trails, and fishing lakes.
