About Jackson

Flag of Jackson, MississippiSatellite view showing Jackson, most populous city and capital of the State of Mississippi in the United States. Jackson is located 186 mi (300 km) north of New Orleans, on the Pearl River.

Like any US city also Jackson started from scratch as LeFleur's Bluff, a trading post on the west bank of the Pearl River, close to the Old Natchez Trace, an ancient trade route. In December 1817, the western portion of Mississippi Territory became the State of Mississippi as the 20th state of the Union. In 1822 the capital was moved from Natchez to Jackson, which became the permanent seat of Mississippi's government.

Today Jackson has a population of about 173,000 inhabitants (in 2014).

The city is home to Jackson State University, one of the historically black universities, the Mississippi State Fair‎ and the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, the state's largest museum.
