Jackson College Heritage Center

History lives at Jackson College with Jackson College Heritage Center at the W.J. Maher Campus!

Over the years, Jackson College students have participated in projects and interviewed more than 100 residents in Jackson, Lenawee and Hillsdale counties. Students have collected stories, photos and artifacts and compiled displays, videos, books and more. With the support of the Jackson College Foundation, these efforts will now be focused on the Center for Regional History.

Students gain valuable experience with these projects. They learn about original source materials, boost their writing and communications skills, and improve their research skills. Beyond the classroom, they develop skills in working with others, communicating, prioritizing, organizing, and offering volunteer service.
