Located in central North Dakota, the City of Jamestown is a friendly community with a population of approximately 16,000.

One of Jamestown’s finest attributes is its small-town atmosphere offering a family-friendly, safe community where everyone knows everyone else. Jamestown is a place adorned in charm. The city is nestled between two rivers, the James and the Pipestem, providing numerous outdoor recreational opportunities.

Jamestown’s Main Street complements its small-town ambiance. Recently revitalized storefronts and turn-of-the-century-style street lamps suggest the disarming feel of a simpler, more genteel era. Providing live entertainment, Babb’s coffee shop is a perfect stop for the most intense coffee lovers. Enjoy an espresso while strolling the sidewalks of downtown Jamestown in search of antiques, crafts, and unique keepsakes and dining experiences available at the numerous locally-owned and operated specialty shops.

If you are looking for a more modern shopping and dining experience, you will enjoy Jamestown’s retail shopping district located in the southern end of the valley. With a shopping mall, Walmart and numerous franchise restaurants, you won’t go home empty-handed.
