View of Jackson, Jackson County, M.I., 1881 / drawn & published by A. Ruger.

This bird’s-eye view print of Jackson, Michigan was drawn and published by Albert Ruger, Beck & Pauli Lith. in 1881. Jackson was settled on the banks of the Grand River in the late 1820's and was named county seat of the newly established Jackson County in 1832.

It was located along a well-used trail mid-way between Detroit and Chicago.
