The Oman Arena (originally Jackson Coliseum) is a 5,600-seat multi-purpose arena, in Jackson, Tennessee, USA. It was opened in 1967, and is architecturally similar to the Mid-South Coliseum in Memphis, which was built four years earlier and seats almost twice as many patrons as Oman Arena. The arena is located between the campuses of Madison Academic Magnet High School and the former Jackson Central-Merry High School, in central Jackson. In the 1980s, it was renamed in honor of the late Tury Oman, a local long-time coach. From 1990 to 2011, it hosted the NAIA Women's Division I National Championship Basketball Tournament. It hosts other local sporting events and concerts.
This 1,247-acre area is located on the east banks of the Tennessee River. Tradition has it that Mousetail Landing received its name during the Civil War period when one of the areaâ€™s tanning companies caught fire. The exodus of mice fleeing the burning tannery was so profuse that the area in proximity of the park became known as Mousetail Landing. With Mousetail Landing State Park located on the Tennessee River, fishing is a popular activity. Fishing is permitted anywhere you can reach water. Bass, bream, crappie, stripe and catfish can be caught along the banks. Mousetail Landing has primitive campgrounds as well as sites with hookups for overnight guests.
