The Jackson County Historical Society was organized in 1969
 
 
Objectives of the Society
 
To discover, procure, preserve and publish whatever may relate to Jackson County’s natural, traditional, civic, military, literary and genealogical history of interest to this and future generations.
 
To encourage study of and research into the archaeology, genealogy, sociology and other matters of history of this area.
 
Preamble of our Constitution:
 
There is a personal and patriotic obligation resting upon the citizenship of every community to assemble and preserve its traditions, customs and history.
 
The programs, efforts, and resources of the Society exist for the benefit of every person in our community who desires to inform themselves of their heritage.
 
An extensive library of historical documents has been published by the Society for research use and is available at the public library. 
 
The many activities of the Society are carried out by volunteer efforts of the members.
