Nicknamed “The Buffalo City,” Jamestown is located in a picturesque valley where the James and Pipestem rivers meet.

The rivers, valley and rolling hills provide great year-round outdoor opportunities. From hunting, fishing, golfing and hiking in the summer to ice fishing, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing in the winter, there's always something to do.
