Welcome to the City of Jackson, Ohio

Lillian Jones Museum Jackson County is very fortunate to have its own historical and cultural museum which provides unique opportunities for residents and visitors alike. The home formerly owned by Lillian Jones, whose family was active in the early business and social past of Jackson County, was left to be used as a museum to encourage and preserve the history of Jackson County. In addition to preserving the history of the area, the museum strives to implement new programs, exhibits, and events of interest for the education and enjoyment of the community.
