The seat of Jackson County, Michigan is Jackson, which was founded in 1829. The settlement was named Jacksonopolis. That name was later changed to Jacksonburgh. In 1838, the name was finally changed to Jackson. The first official meeting of what would eventually become the Republican party was held in Jackson. There were so many people in attendance, they could not all fit into any building, so the convention was held in an oak grove which came to be known now as Under the Oaks.
