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, complemented 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 Homeplace and Jamestown Public Library, which is the neoclassical centerpiece of Main Street. Visit Town Hall at 301 E. Main Street Monday - Friday (excluding holidays) from 8:30am until 5:00pm.

Held in 10,000 cities and towns in all 50 states, simply place a bag of food (or two!) by your mailbox to benefit 13 local food pantries in the Greater High Point area on Saturday, May 12th.

In Jamestown, hunting is only permitted on parcels which are larger than 5 acres.  A map showing eligible hunting areas may be viewed here.  A copy of the ordinance specific to Jamestown may be viewed here.  For specific questions, please contact Matthew Johnson, Director of Planning at 336-454-1138 or mjohnson@jamestown-nc.gov.
