Jackson, TN


Moving to Jackson—West Tennessee
Jackson is 85 miles Northeast of Memphis, in the southwestern part of Tennessee. The population in the city is about 65,200, and the Jackson-Humboldt Metro area population adds another 100,000 residents. Jackson is easy to get to, since Interstate-40 intersects the city heading East-West. Memphis is around an hour and a half away, or 85 miles to the southwest, and Nashville is 130 miles to the northeast.

Music. Considering that Jackson is between Memphis and Nashville, it’s no surprise that the city also shares in a rich musical heritage. Multiple annual music festivals give residents a chance to experience different kinds of musical styles, including rockabilly, blues, and gospel. The Shannon Street Blues & Heritage Festival brings in a crowd of at least 5,000 to listen to live blues music and enjoy a barbecue contest. Two other popular music festivals include the Rockabilly Festival, which brings together around 150 artists and bands, and the Celtic Fest, which provides musical entertainment and food, to celebrate Celtic ancestry.

Entertainment. Of course, there are other non-musical forms of entertainment, such as the Archeofest. This free annual event celebrates Native American heritage through demonstrations of arts and crafts such as loom weaving, pottery, and basketry. The Pinson Mounds State Archeological Area is open year-round for tours. Not to mention, there are several nearby Civil War Battlefield Sites for historians to explore.

Education. There are 28 public schools in the area that serve a total of 13,000 students; if you prefer private education, there are also nine private schools available. There are several higher education institutions both in Jackson and the surrounding area. Jackson State Community College may be small, but it also has a University of Memphis Center which connects students to classes at the University of Memphis without having to travel that distance. The Tennessee Technology Center and Union University are also small but affordable. Outside Jackson, there are two private liberal arts colleges: Bethel University and Freed-Hardman University. But, the University of Tennessee at Martin is the largest in the nearby area with just over 8,000 students and 46 fields of study.

History. Jackson is full of historical significance. You can stop by the Casey Jones Home and Railroad Museum at Casey Jones Village. Casey Jones was a heroic railroad conductor from Jackson who died trying to stop the train and save lives. You can eat a real authentic southern meal at the village, then tour the home and train cars on the property.
