Fun Facts

Home to 173,514 people, Mississippi’s capital is named after President Andrew Jackson who was still a general when the city was christened. Before it was decided that Mississippi’s most populated city should be called “Jackson,” it was referred to as LeFleur’s Bluff—inspired by the French-Canadian explorer Louis LeFleur who founded a trading station along the Pearl River.
