main street jamestownJamestown is a place adorned in charm.  Norman Rockwell could have painted curly-topped boys fishing along the banks of the James River that runs through Jamestown. Western writer Louis L'Amour was born here and we'd like to think Jamestown was a source of inspiration for him. Jamestown is nestled between two rivers - the James River and the Pipestem River which provide recreational opportunities in a beautiful setting.

Jamestown offers excellent public and private schools with a high school completion rate of 91%. Jamestown's state of the art high school provides class sizes that are small by big-city standards where students get personal attention and are encouraged to participate in many extracurricular activities and sports available.  Higher education can also be achieved here at the University of Jamestown which has been ranked the #1 college in North Dakota by US News & World Report for multiple years.

Jamestown is a place of clean air, safe streets and short commutes. You can take time for fitness at the Two Rivers Activity Center, at one of many local athletic clubs, or on the outdoor walking, biking, and hiking trails in and around town.  You can own and operate a thriving business, realize job stability in the same community you own your dream home, enjoy quiet neighborhood living, and watch your children grow.  Here, the American Dream is tangible with the qualities of small town living plus exceptional opportunities to achieve personal and professional success.
