Learn more about Jackson
This town was originally named New Madbury after the seacoast town of Madbury. In 1772, a road was built through the Pinkham Notch and the area was settled in 1778. In the 1800s, the community was renamed in honor of President John Adams who was in office at that time. The name stuck until the town was incorporated in 1829, when Andrew Jackson was inaugurated as president. Thus, the name Jackson. Being one of the region’s most picturesque villages, famous in part for Jackson Falls and Jackson X-C, a 150+ kilometer cross-country skiing trail system, Jackson is also best known for Honeymoon Bridge, a lovely red covered bridge that was built in 1876.
