Top Reasons to Live in Jackson, TN
- Explore the town's railroad history! Jackson's early development was largely due to its role as a railroad junction.

Today, you can explore this railroad history by touring the N.C.& St. L. Depot and Railroad Museum in downtown Jackson or the Casey Jones Museum located at Casey Jones Village. The village also has many other attractions, including two restaurants, a mini-golf course and an old country store.
