Jackson, Michigan was home to twenty-five car manufacturers from 1901 to 1954. In fact, the very first auto in the U.S. was created in 1897 when Jackson resident, Coe S. Reeves attached a motor, three bicycle tires and a gas pipe from a carriage body in his motor shop. This was 10 years before Henry Ford introduced his first Model T!
Our 'Commercial Exchange Building' (2301 E. Michigan) also contributed to early transportation as the home of The Collins Cart and the Jackson Automobile Co.
In 1928, our 'Commercial Exchange Building' was purchased by William (Captain) Sparks for the Sparks-Withington Co., makers of the first electric car horn.
Captain Sparks officed in this building in the front offices while planning his indelible 'mark' on Jackson - The famous man-made waterfalls, The Cascades.
