About JacksonAlthough the Republican Party itself was founded in Ripon, Wis., in 1854, Jackson played host to the party's first formal meeting. The city also was one of the key stops on the Underground Railroad. Some of the houses that served as way stations and sanctuaries still can be seen. Today diversified industry and transportation services anchor Jackson's economy. With 188 lakes, the area offers plenty of recreational opportunities.
