Jacksonville is a small community, bordering the city of Ithaca, located in the township of Ulysses, in Tompkins County, central New York. Some folks refer to Jacksonville as a hamlet. This area of the state is part of what is known as the Finger Lakes region of New York, an area abundant with beautiful parks, lakes, and waterfalls. Of the eleven finger lakes, Cayuga Lake is the closest, just a few miles east. Jacksonville lies between the cities of Ithaca and Geneva, NY along Rt. 96. In a mixture of farm fields, forest, historic homes, and some newer neighborhoods, Jacksonville is a close-knit community with a village-like atmosphere where some farming still takes place. The township of Ulysses is both spectacular in beauty and interesting with it's rich historical heritage. This community of Jacksonville was named in honor of President Andrew Jackson in 1815.
