Jackson

This concentration of roads terminating at Jackson made it necessary for the Central Company to provide for the repair and building of the equipment of roads, and led to the establishment of the shops here for the building and repair of locomotives, and made Jackson the head-quarters of the assistant general superintendent, and most of the officers connected with the working department of the road. This action of the company has made Jackson the residence of over 1,000 of the employes of the Central Road and its branches, and has undoubtedly already caused an addition of over 5,000 to the population of the city.
