Shoppes of Casey Jones

In addition to Brooks Shaw’s Old Country Store, the historic Casey Jones Home and Railroad Museum, mini-golf course, and amphitheater, the Casey Jones Village includes the Shoppes of Casey Jones.

The Shoppes of Casey Jones include a wide variety of shops and services. Many sell unique gifts and collectibles boasting the music heritage of West Tennessee.

One of the shops, Art in the Village, was started in 2009 by two local artists who wanted to feature local and regional original artwork including painting, pottery, and jewelry as well as art lessons. They now feature work from 25 artists. Debbie Bowers, local artist and former high school teacher, says, “It is a great opportunity for travelers to see local talent. I enjoy having my paintings here. Some of mine have been purchased by travelers passing through and are now hanging in Lebonheur Children’s Hospital and are even hanging as far away as Ohio.”

Church at the Village hosts services on Sundays and Wednesdays. This congregation was founded in 2004 as a non-denominational fellowship. Since such a large number of travelers from around the world visit the Casey Jones Village each year, they wanted their congregation in the midst of them. In 2006, they moved to the Village in order to better minister to the community and travelers. They have recently expanded into over 5,000 square feet.

Each of the Shoppes of Casey Jones tells the story of Jackson and exemplifies the southern charm and hospitality that Jackson is often known for.
