Panoramic View of Jackson 1910

This panorama view was taken in about 1910. There are so many fascinating details that in addition to showing the full width image, I’ve also created five closeup pictures focusing on different parts of the view.

If you look carefully, you’ll see the horses pulling carts and wagons round the streets.

Coloner Power’s House

John Logan Power was born in Ireland in 1834. In 1855, he moved from Ireland to Jackson, Mississippi. Five years later he founded the Jackson Daily News, before becoming the official reporter of the Mississippi Secession Convention and then serving in the Confederate Army during the American Civil War.

Upon returning to civilian life, he once again founded a local newspaper, which in 1890 was renamed the Daily Clarion Ledger.

Between 1896 and his death in 1901, Coloner Power served as Secretary of State.

His daughter Anabel Power then lived in the Colonel’s house at 411 Amite Street, until her own death in 1958.

Colonel Power’s House, which sat against the high rise Standard Life Building, was demolished shortly after Anabel’s death.

Ten years later, the metal ironwork from Colonel Power’s house was installed in crescent-shaped tiers in the courtyard of the Junior League Headquarters at 805 Riverside Drive.
