Founded in 1821 as the site for the new state capital of Mississippi, the city is named after General Andrew Jackson for his role in the Battle of New Orleans and as the 7th U.S. president. Jackson is officially named the City of Jackson.
The original city was planned based on a checkerboard pattern recommended by Thomas Jefferson that alternated green spaces with city blocks.
Despite remaining a small town for much of the 19th century, Jackson was a strategic center during the Civil War. It became known as “Chimneyville” after the war because only the chimneys of houses remained standing after the city was burned by Union forces. Today it is the state’s largest metropolitan city with a population of just over 165,000 residents.
