Welcome to the Town of Jamestown, NC


Whether you already call Jamestown home, or are relocating or visiting, you will find that Jamestown is rich with history and small town charm.

Founded in 1816 and named for Quaker James Mendenhall, Jamestown is nestled within minutes of the bustling Triad. Our quaint restaurants, desirable shops, welcoming neighborhoods, and involved citizens make our town one of the South’s gems. The Town is a full service community that consists of approximately 3.0 square miles with a growing population located in southwestern Guilford County. Here you will find the charm of a community full of friendly faces and a helping hand, complimented by the amenities that a larger city has to offer.

A strong sense of community, quality of life, neighborhood schools, parks (Jamestown Park and Golf Course ,Wrenn Miller Park, Gibson Park, and Ragsdale Family Y) and proximity to major employers are some of the reasons why many have chosen to call Jamestown home.

Thanks to our community’s dedication to preservation and restoration and our ever-expanding pedestrian walkways, Jamestown’s distinctive curbside appeal ensures that generations to come will enjoy walking with history.

Jamestown is known for protecting and enhancing our natural, cultural and historic resources, and is home to many treasured historical sites, including the Mendenhall Plantation and Jamestown Public Library, which is the neoclassical centerpiece of Main Street. Visit Town Hall at 301 E. Main Street.

Little Free Library            

How this works!

This Library belongs to everyone! Your neighbors, friends, people who pass by. Anyone may use it. This Little Free Library offers a way to share good things to read.

Take Books. If you see something you would like to read, take it. Browse through and see who read it or gave it. When finished, you can leave your own special note in it!

Share Books. Pass them on to a friend or return them to any Little Free Library.

Give Books. Continue to be a friend of your Library and others by helping any way you can. Pay it forward!

This Little Free Library was donated by The Jamestown Modern Book Club and sponsored by the Jamestown Civitan Club. The Library was skillfully built by Hugh Cates, June 2014 and installed by Scott Coakley and the crew of the Parks and Recreation Staff.
