Jackson County, named after President Andrew Jackson, is one of the original Texas counties, formed in 1836 from the old Mexican municipality of Jackson. The area was settled by American colonists, though the first occupants of the land were the Karankawa Indians.
Edna is the county’s largest town and county seat, and nearly 50 percent of the county is considered farmland. Jackson borders the Lavaca Bay and Carancahua Bay and neighbors Calhoun, Victoria, Lavaca, Colorado, Wharton and Matagorda counties.
