Jackson was named after Andrew Jackson after the 7th president, but this wasn't always the case. It is not clear what the people of the Choctaw Nation called this area before Europeans settled it in 1820, but we do know that the area was initially named Parkerville by the settlers. It was then changed to LeFleur's Bluff, after a French Canadian trader. After the Battle of New Orleans the name was changed to Jackson in recognition of his victory.
