1. TOUR THE OLD CAMPUS
UNION UNIVERSITY, JACKSON, TN
Union University traces its Jackson, TN roots to the founding of Jackson Male Academy in 1823. The campus, located between College Street and Lexington Avenue in East Jackson would house higher education for a century and a half. Jackson Male Academy would eventually become West Tennessee College, before being purchased by Tennessee Baptists to establish Southwestern Baptist University. Renamed Union University in 1907, the school remained on the East Jackson campus until 1976 when it moved to its current location in North Jackson.
