Map of Jackson, TN

Welcome to Jackson, TN!

Jackson is situated halfway between two major American cities: Memphis, the home of the Blues, and Nashville, the home of country music, making the city a great base to explore Tennessee. Visitors to Jackson can relive the Steam Age of railroading by touring the Casey Jones Village, which contains a railroad museum and the home of Casey Jones, a brave engineer immortalized in American folklore after he died at his post saving train passengers from possible death. The area's Civil War history is captured in nearby Shiloh National Military Park, the site of a major battle that now features battlefield tours, monuments, cannons and historic tablets. Surrounding much of Jackson, Cypress Nature Grove Park boasts trails, cypress forest and the Aerie Trail Raptor Center, a sanctuary for birds of prey that have been injured and cannot survive in the wild. Jackson is also home to Lake Graham, a 575-acre (233-ha) man-made lake that has a fishing pier, a picnic area and boat ramps.
