Jacks House is in the hamlet of Havannah, so named after the battle of Cuba in 1762 when the British defeated the Spanish and took over the island.

The street was built in 1826 for mill workers. At on stage there were upwards of 92 cottages. Jacks is one of those that had been two cottages.

Trade for the mills failed in the 1880s and the workers moved out. The village became known as the "deserted village" attracting tourists as shown by the adjacent photograph.

The Marsuma cigarette company took over the mills utilitsing the village name and produced "Havannah Cigars".

The houses were refurbished in 1922 into what you see today.

The mills provided their own electricity from the water wheels. The foreman who lived in the village turning the electric supply off when he went to bed.
