General Jackson County Information

Jackson County is named after our seventh President Andrew Jackson.  Originally, the Jackson County government consisted of a legislative plane of three individuals popularly elected.  Each one’s title was “County Judge” which is like a County Commissioner in other areas of the country.  Of course, the most famous County Judge is Harry S. Truman, President of the United States from 1945-1953.

President Harry Truman left a decorating legacy behind that began in Kansas City. In fact, his design savvy helped make Kansas City become known as the nation’s top 10 city for art deco buildings. Truman traveled the country at his own expense to locate a design for the courthouse, which he found in Louisiana. The Jackson County Courthouse still stands tall and remains a well-known landmark in Kansas City.
