History & History Related Items

Jacksonville history:

The land that would become Jacksonville was purchased in1833 from the Creek Indian Chief Ladiga. Because Ladiga was a signerof the Cusseta Treaty of 1832 under which terms the Creeks gave uptheir remaining lands, he was allowed to select land in the county andto have his title validated.

Life here has long centered around education, beginning on April 16,1834 when the town reserved a one-acre square for a schoolhouse. In1836 the Jacksonville Academy was incorporated and 1837 saw theestablishment of the Jacksonville Female Academy. In 1883 the Academywas recognized as a State Normal School and through the years, becameJacksonville State Teachers College before attaining full universitystatus in 1966. This small southern town is a center for educational opportunity, as well being a quiet community which many retired military people have called home. Their families, as well as the many college students give the town a unique quality -- one of "quiet excitement". Summer time is accented by many summer camps that visit the JSU campus: Cheerleaders, baseball and band camps learn new skills/routines in the rich warm grasses, and cool off in the localbusinesses after a busy day.
