Jacktown, or Jack's Town, is the name given to the area comprising High Street between Main Street and Jacktown Road.

Contrary to rumors, Jacktown is not named for a jackass farm, but for Jack Shoppert who developed the area and operated a mill on the east bank of Blue's Creek on the north side of High Street.
