New book about Madison County, TN!

Are you a native Jacksonian?  Are you interested in the history of Madison County?   Do you we have a book for you!


Images of America: Madison County, Tennessee by Linda J. Higgins and Scott Parish, two native Jackson residents and authors, is a book all about Madison County!

Here is the publisher’s description:

“Madison County became the hub of West Tennessee in the 20th century. Now major highways and rail lines traverse the county and its seat, Jackson. Three railroad companies and industry spawned by the railroads, such as the cotton mill town of Bemis, provided the main sources of employment during the 1900s. As job opportunities abounded, the population grew. Images of America: Madison County features the industrial development, business history, and lives of those people who were touched by this tremendous growth in Jackson and the county’s outlying communities during the 20th century.”
