Jackson COUNTY

Is situated in the northwestern portion of the State, bounded on the north by the Missouri river, and on the west by the Kansas State line. The county has an undulating surface, with a desirable division of prairie and timber, underlaid with limestone, well adapted for building purposes, and is well watered. The soil is very fertile, producing the heaviest yields of all kinds of agricultural products. The agricultural, manufacturing and commercial resources of Jackson county are second to but one or two in the State, and in some respects it has no equal. The Union Pacific railroad is completed and in operation from Kansas City, west, to Lawrence, and is being pushed forward with all possible dispatch. The Pacific railroad of Missouri will be completed to Kansas City, probably, early in June, thus making a continuous line from Kansas City to St Louis and the East. Capitalists, manufacturers, farmers, mechanics, or any class of business men will here find ample scope for the profitable employment of the capital, labor and skill. The principal towns in the county are Independence, the county seat, Kansas City, the heaviest commercial point west of St Louis, Westport, Sibley, Lone Jack, New Santa Fe, etc. Population 1860, 19,166.
