The Farish Street Historic District is made of about twenty square blocks north of downtown Jackson. The District supported a prosperous Black residential and business community that dated to the antebellum era in the state.

When the railroad was completed and after the enslaved were free, many settled in and around Jackson near the Farish Street Historic District.
