    Michigan Theatre

    The Michigan Theatre, the last and largest theatre built in downtown Jackson, opened April 30, 1930. The building’s exotic Spanish style, lavish interior plasterwork, terra cotta facade, carved walnut furniture, plush carpeting, heavy damask draperies, stained glass light fixtures, and oil paintings entertained the patrons as much as the attractions on the stage and screens.

    Cascades
    Cascades (color), Jackson
    The Cascades are a colorful monument of beauty and distinction which has brought fond memories to the millions of people who have visited them for over half a century. The Cascades are the result of one man’s dream to do something for the people of Jackson -- to build an attraction that would provide visitors with a positive impression of the city.
