Jackson is the capital city of Mississippi. The Mississippi Freedom Trail runs throughout the entire city and includes many historical sites that were important during the civil rights movement. These sites include the Mississippi State Capitol Building and the Medgar Evers Home Museum. Jackson is also home to the state’s children’s museum, and to the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, which has nature trails and an aquarium.
Jackson was founded in 1821 and is named after General Andrew Jackson, who played a significant role as a general and later became U.S. President. The city has been nicknamed “The City with Soul,” as it’s had much prominent jazz, blues, gospel, and folk musicians. It’s Missippi’s largest metropolitan area and contains one-fifth of Mississippi’s population. As such, the restaurant business in the city has been booming.
