A SHORT HISTORY:

Jackson County was organized March, 1816.  The county is rich in minerals and abounds in coal and iron ore.  Jackson, the county seat, was laid out in 1817.  The old Scioto salt works were among the first worked in Ohio by the whites.  Prior to this period the Indians came some distance to this section to make salt.  When Daniel Boone was a prisoner he spent some time at the works.

Jackson County is named for Andrew Jackson, a hero of the War of 1812 who was elected President of the United States.
