Jackson is an industrial, commercial, and trading center located on the Grand River in south-central Michigan about 70 miles west of Detroit. Settled in 1829 and named for Andrew Jackson, it is the seat of Jackson County. A state political convention held here in 1854 was one of the first to choose the name "Republican Party" for the anti-slavery coalition then forming in the north, giving the city claim to being the party's birthplace. By 1871, the city had become a major railroad center, with shops, yards, and manufacturing facilities.
