JACKSON-On this day in 1836, Alexander Pushkin died from wounds suffered in duel days earlier.
A memorial dedicated to Pushkin is here in Jackson, dedicated to the Russian poet and writer. Jackson is home to a very large Russian Orthodox population and was once a global vacation destination for the Russian Orthodox community. Many came to the now defunct, but once very popular and thriving Rova Farms Resort.
Jackson is also home to the Pushkin Memorial Home, a senior assisted living facility.
