Jackson

The Michigan Central Railroad was completed to Jackson on the 29th of December, 1841, and, as it was nearly three years from that date before it was completed to Albion, in this interval of time in which Jackson was the terminus of the road, and commanded the business of the country north and west, undoubtedly was laid the foundation, not only of the future prosperity of the city, but also of that of most of our active, successful business men. The prosperous citizens of Jackson in 1878, are those who in 1842-3-4 were then commencing their business career, most of them with but a limited capital, but with unbounded confidence and determination to succeed. The interests of the Central Road subsequently became, in a great measure, identified with that of Jackson, in consequence of the leasing to that company of the Jackson, Lansing and Saginaw the Grand River Valley, and the Air Line Railroads.
