  • County Number 39 on Alabama Licence Plates

Jackson County is the northeasternmost county in the U.S. state of Alabama. As of the 2010 census, the population was 53,227.[1] The county seat is Scottsboro.[2] It was named for Andrew Jackson, general in the United States Army and afterward President of the United States of America.[3] Jackson County is a prohibition or dry county, however three cities within the county (Bridgeport, Scottsboro, and Stevenson) are wet.

Jackson County comprises the Scottsboro, AL Micropolitan Statistical Area, which is also included in the Chattanooga-Cleveland-Dalton, TN-GA-AL Combined Statistical Area.

History[edit]

Jackson County was established on December 13, 1819.

Geography[edit]

Map of Jackson County showing census subdivisions

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 1,127 square miles (2,920 km2), of which 1,078 square miles (2,790 km2) is land and 49 square miles (130 km2) (%) is water.[4] It is the fifth-largest county in Alabama by total area. Much of it is located in the Appalachians.

Of special interest is Russell Cave National Monument, which is located in Doran Cove, approximately 5 miles west of the town of Bridgeport. Russell Cave is an important archaeological site that was excavated in 1956 by the Smithsonian Institution and the National Geographic Society. An article in the October 1956 issue of National Geographic Magazine proudly proclaims: "Life 8,000 Years Ago Uncovered in an Alabama Cave." The article was written by Carl F. Miller, the Expedition Leader and is on pages 542–558. Russell Cave was declared a National Monument in May 1961 by President John F. Kennedy. The Monument consists of 310 acres (1.3 km2) of land donated by the National Geographic Society.

While most of North Alabama became solidly Republican during the 1970s, Jackson County remained up through the 2000s a stronghold of the Democratic Party (which is not to say the residents are liberals; see Dixiecrat and Southern Democrat). Up until November 2012, there are no elected Republicans in local Jackson County Government. In that year’s general election, two Republicans were elected to the Jackson County Commission—the first Republicans to serve on the Commission since Reconstruction.[12] There is now an all Republican delegation in Jackson County. Tommy Hanes and Ritchie Whorton represent the county in the Alabama State House of Representatives. Steve Livingston serves Jackson County in the Alabama State Senate. In the, 2004 Presidential Election, Jackson County voted for Republican George W. Bush over Democrat John Kerry. It was the first time Jackson County voters chose a Republican presidential candidate over a Democrat since 1972.

The trending Republican has continued since 2004. In 2008 John McCain won the county with 67.7 percent of the vote.[13] In 2010 Republican gubernatorial candidate Robert J. Bentley received 56% of the vote,[14] Republican House candidate Mo Brooks received 55% of the vote,[15] and incumbent Senator Richard Shelby received 70% in the county.[16] Although in 2010 Democratic politicians continued to win in Jackson on some of the more local races.[17]

The current Jackson County Commission is headed by Chairman Matthew Hodges.
