History

Jackson county was formed from the south part of Greer county and was given the name Jackson in honor of Stonewall Jackson, the noted Confederate leader in the Civil War. The area is 720 square miles, practically all of which is farming land.
Sixty per cent is in cultivation. Cotton, corn, wheat, alfalfa and other hay are the principal crops.
