Jackson Township was named after Andrew Jackson who was a major general in the War of 1812, and who later became the seventh president of the United States. There were two transportation lines that helped the area’s growth and development - a canal from Massillon to Akron and Massillon to Dover and the railroad.

By the late 1800’s and early 1900’s Jackson Township was a thriving community because it was a leader in coal mining, sand and gravel mining and farm products. By the mid-1900s Jackson Township transitioned to a suburban community, and Interstate 77 was built, which cut through the township. This major route contributed to additional growth and change.

Since then, the community has continued to grow and develop and their school districts continue to rank among the highest in the country making Jackson Township a desirable place to live and raise a family.
