About Jamestown Colorado


The town of Jamestown is located in Boulder County, just north of the city of Boulder. It was incorporated in 1883 after gold was discovered near Jim Creek in the 1870s.
Jamestown is home to Jamestown Elementary School which is one of very few remaining “one-room” schools in the country. It is also the location of the Johnstown Mercantile which hosts weekly live music, serves delicious food made with local produce, and is known as a community meeting place. Much of the town was destroyed in the flood of 2013.
