North Augusta: James U. Jackson's Dream by Jeanne M. McDaniel

The story of James U. Jackson and the history of North Augusta are inseparable. In the 1800s, James U. Jackson was one of the youngest railroad officials in the country. As a boy, he dreamed of developing the area on the bluffs across the Savannah River from Augusta, Georgia. That dream became a reality in 1906, when the community of North Augusta was incorporated. Not only a man of vision, Jackson's energy, drive, and personality enabled him to secure financial backing from several cities for his business ventures. His interurban railway, one of the first in the South, contributed to the development of the area's resort hotel industry, which catered to many people from the North during the winter months. Today, North Augusta's riverfront development continues, distinguishing it as a strong and independent community. James U. Jackson's dream continues to prosper.
