Casey Jones was a railroad engineer who lived in the 1800's and became an internationally known icon due to his heroic last ride where he saved all the passengers on his train. He slowed down the train as much as possible before impact when there was a train stalled on the tracks ahead near Vaughan, Mississippi on April 30th, 1900 on a run from Memphis to Canton, MS. Read the entire story on the link above to the right "The Legend of Casey Jones". He lived in Jackson, Tennessee with his wife and three children and we are so proud to operate the Casey Jones Home & Railroad Museum here in Casey Jones Village in Jackson.
