Jackson County is located about 60 miles southeast of Columbus. The county is named in honor of Andrew Jackson.
The county was settled by the Welsh people and in the early days Welsh was the language commonly spoken here. Jackson, the county seat, was once the center of the nation's silvery iron industry. It now houses one of the country's largest manufacturers of canned Chinese food products.
