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.

Urban Archery
The Town of Jamestown participates in the Urban Archery hunting season.  The intention of this season is to reduce urban deer populations by permitting archery hunting during the extended season.  It does not obligate landowners to allow hunting on their property, nor does it eliminate the ethical requirement for hunters to obtain permission from landowners.  Information on the timing of the hunting season may be obtained from the NC Wildlife Resources Commission here

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.
