City of Jackson

Located at the intersections of I-94 and US-127, Jackson, Michigan is a hard-working, vibrant city with the charm and warmth of a quaint town.

Jackson is also great place for businesses to call home. It offers a number of incentives to help businesses succeed, and a workforce of highly skilled and productive individuals to assure that success is met.

So whether you’ve come to know it as the Rose City, home of the Cascade Falls or birthplace of the Republican Party, Jackson continues to evolve and develop, making a new name for itself every day.
