James Urquhart Jackson, founder of North Augusta, was born in the village of Harrisonville, near Augusta, Georgia, on June 24, 1856. It was his vision that shaped North Augusta's early years.

In 1890 Jackson acquired 5600 acres of land across the river from Augusta in South Carolina. The following year, he constructed a bridge across the Savannah River at 13th Street. As the city developed, a trolley line was built in 1897 to connect Augusta and North Augusta. In 1902 Jackson constructed the first interurban road in the South which connected the resort hotels in the communities of Augusta, North Augusta and Aiken. The Hampton Terrace Hotel was constructed in 1903 and was patronized by many of the most influential people of the time.

Jackson died at Rosemary Hall, his home in North Augusta, on October 15, 1925. His dream, however, continues today. Residents and visitors enjoy the tree lined streets, small parks and picturesque homes of North Augusta.
