The Village of Jackson, a small town in southeastern Wisconsin, offers families all of the conveniences of big-city living with a small-town feel. The ideal place to live and work, Jackson is nestled at the intersection of US Hwy 45 and State Hwy 60 – between Milwaukee and West Bend. With a population of 7,187 in 2019, the quaint neighborhood exudes family values and community pride. But that’s not all. Here are other reasons to move to the Village of Jackson WI.
The History of Jackson, Wisconsin
The Village of Jackson, named after former President Andrew Jackson, was incorporated in 1912. Prior to that, the village once known as Riceville was one of three unincorporated settlements that now make up the Towns of Jackson and Polk. Acquired by a German immigrant, Franz Reis, in 1872, the 400-acre hamlet became the site for a train depot, linking the railroad between Fond du Lac and Milwaukee. This foresight led to the development of Jackson.
With the railroad passing through town, often the only way children got to school at the time, Reis’ entrepreneurial fortitude took over. In 1873, he built a grain elevator, saloon, and general store. The community grew exponentially from there, shortly containing a multitude of trade businesses including blacksmith shops, hardware store, carpenter shop, sawmill, lumber yard, and post office.
By the time the Village of Jackson had incorporated two creameries, a hotel and dance hall, a cheese factory, and a doctor had joined the growing town. By 1920, the population grew to 230 people and three major industries moved in. The village reported little growth over the next 50 years, until 1970 when two new subdivisions were built to keep up with the expansion of local businesses. Construction continued at a steady pace over the years until a boom in the ‘90s, brought on by the completion of Highway 45. Today, the Village of Jackson remains one of the fastest-growing neighborhoods throughout Washington County.
