Black Jack is on Farm Road 1803 nine miles northeast of Athens in eastern Henderson County. The settlement was evidently founded prior to 1900. A local school was operating by 1906, when it had an enrollment of 114. In the mid-1930s Black Jack had a church, a school, and a number of houses. After World War II the school closed, and in the early 1990s only a church, a cemetery, and a few scattered houses remained.
