Major Industries and Commercial Activity
Jackson is located in the South central part of Michigan about 60 mile WSW of Detroit with a population of approximately 34,000.
Jackson is one of the original birthplaces of the Republican Party. The first official gathering of the group that calling itself "Republican" was held in Jackson in a place called "Under the Oaks" on July 6, 1854. A Historical Marker is placed at what is now the northwest corner of Franklin and Second streets in Jackson and commemorates an anti-slavery county convention on July 6, 1854. The group met outdoors to escape the hot, over-crowded hall, that eventually selected a slate of candidates for state elections. The marker identifies this location as the birth of the Republican Party. The site, an oak tree grove on "Morgan's Forty", at the time on the outskirts of town, became known as "Under the Oaks".
Jackson is also the place when the first Coney Island Restaurant was established. In 1914, George Todoroff made the first hot dog with the coney island topping from a railroad station located on East Michigan Ave. Open 24 hours a day the proved to be very popular with travelers as well as the locals.
Also located in Jackson, was the first state prison (1838). Made of wood, it was built on sixty acres of land donated for that purpose within the city limits of Jackson and was meant as a temporary prison. A permanent prison was built three years later and eventually grew to become the largest prison in the world of the period. Within its walls were factories, farms, manufacturing facilities, all taking advantage of the free inmate labor.
Jackson's three major private employers are CMS Energy, which provides natural gas and electrical service to much of Michigan and has its international headquarters in the city, the Eaton Corporation, as well as Allegiance Health, formerly the Foote Hospital
