What Bert Has To Say About Jackson Metro Area

Jackson is Mississippi’s largest city and a hub of government, commerce, and manufacturing for the state. Civil War fires wiped out much of the town’s antebellum feel. However, there are several points of historic interest, including the capitol building and some attractive older city neighborhoods close in. Some new development is moving to the north towards Canton, home of a Nissan plant.
