History Of "Scioto Salt Works" Now On Web

A brand-new item on this website is the "Scioto Salt Works" history of Jackson County, Ohio - "A Chronology". This vast amount of information was compiled by J. Michael and Deanna P. Stroth, both members of the Jackson Historical Society. They have worked on this for years and have graciously allowed the society to publish it here.

WesBanco Helps With Powell Plaza Project 

Thanks to a generous donation from WesBanco recently, the Jackson Historical Society has purchase five period street lights for the Powell Plaza. Society members and city workers were involved in getting the area ready for the installation of the lights.

After years of hard work, the Jackson Historical Society has nearly completed the historic Round House and the Powell Memorial Plaza. The society hopes to add new benches, planters and waste receptacles for the area.

The plaza is located on Main Street in downtown Jackson, Ohio, next to the courthouse. For more photos of the restoration and dedication, please visit the Photo Gallery page.
