Jackson Apartments for Rent
Jackson, Mississippi is unique: It is the only US capital to sit atop a volcano – the Jackson Volcano is an extinct volcano that was discovered in 1819. The Mississippi Coliseum and the Mississippi State Fairgrounds are directly above the volcano.
Jackson played a major role in history – It was the first city to allow married women to own and administer their own property in 1839. It was the center of manufacturing during the Civil War, and the Governor’s Mansion (a National Historic Landmark) served as General William Sherman’s headquarters. During the 1960s, it was one of the cities at the heart of the Civil Rights movement. The first lung transplant took place at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in 1963.
With such a long and important history, the museums in Jackson are plentiful – visit the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, the Smith-Robertson Museum and Cultural Center, the Celtic Heritage Society of Mississippi, and the Mississippi Heritage Trust. There are also many art galleries, theaters, the Mississippi Opera, and Ballet Mississippi to choose from.
Choose a Jackson apartment and enjoy well over 200 restaurants, great shopping, exciting nightlife, and more. Visit the Boddie Mansion, see the bronze statue of Medgar Evers, and stroll down the historic Farish Street District. With the knowledge that you’re renting your new place in one of the most affordable cities in the country, you’ll appreciate this City with a Soul that much more.
