Jackson Depot

Unlike many Georgia towns, Jackson was not created by the railroad. It was established in the 1820s, decades before the the East Tennessee, Virginia & Georgia Railroad arrived in 1882, which is why the depot is a half mile from the town center.

The ETV&G was folded into Southern Railway in 1894.

A city of some 5,013 people, Jackson is the county seat of Butts County. It is located off I-75 between Atlanta and Macon.
