It is a small but good town. Greeneview is an excellent school system, and is growing. It has surprisingly advanced technology for such a rural school. The teaching staff is good and the building is nice. The town itself may leave some to be desired in terms of restaurants, but it is in a prime position to be close to several cities with many options.

Jamestown is a very nice small town with a tight knit community. It has very good public schools, excellent community leadership, and is filled with great people who are always there to help and support one another.

Area attractions are Shawnee Lake, Deb's Place Diner, Benito's Pizza, Kelley's Cafe, and a very nice city park that is currently being outfitted with all new playground equipment.
Jamestown, Ohio has a lot of small town problems. On the flip side, Jamestown is a nice small town to live. It is the typical small town with it being quiet and everyone knows each other. Stores close by 10 and the town goes quiet. That is my favorite part about the town. I will be living here for awhile.
