A Taste of Jacksonville, Arkansas

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT JACKSONVILLE?

  1. Jacksonville is a city in Pulaski County, Arkansas, United States, and a suburb of Little Rock. As of the 2010 census, the population of the city was 28,364. It is part of the Little Rock–North Little Rock–Conway Metropolitan Statistical Area.

  2. The city is named for Nicholas Jackson, landowner who deeded the land for the railroad right-of-way to the Cairo & Fulton Railroad in 1870. The community evolved from the settlement surrounding the railroad depot, eventually incorporating in 1941.

  3. Despite Pulaski County being one of the few counties in Arkansas that is not a "dry" county, as it allows the sales of beer and liquor, the municipal limits of Jacksonville are "dry", as it does not allow the sales of alcohol in stores.

  4. The Vertac site in Jacksonville is one of the nation’s worst hazardous waste sites and Arkansas's most publicized Superfund site. Cleanup of the area after its abandonment by its corporate owner took more than a decade, and the name "Vertac" soon became synonymous in Arkansas with the fear of industrial pollution, similar to how New Yorkers view Love Canal.

  5. The median income for a household in the city was $35,460, and the median income for a family was $40,381.
