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.

Politics[edit]

While most of North Alabama has become solidly Republican, Jackson County remains 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.[10] 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% of the vote.[11] In 2010 Republican gubernatorial candidate Robert J. Bentley received 56% of the vote,[12] Republican House candidate Mo Brooks received 55% of the vote,[13] and incumbent Senator Richard Shelby received 70% in the county.[14] Although in 2010 Democratic politicians continued to win in Jackson on some of the more local races.[15]

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