About Jackson

Rooted in History. Modern in Industry.

Coe S.Reeves attached a motor, three bicycle tires and a gas pipe to a carriage body in his motor shop on Pearle Street. It was 1897. Reeves created one of the first gasoline-powered vehicles in the U.S.

This was 10 years before Henry Ford introduced his first Model T.

The Cascades

William (Cap) Sparks planned the Sparks County Park and Cascades waterfalls in his office in this building. The Sparks-Withington Company bought the building in 1928 and manufactured some of the first decorative radios and televisions here.
