This is my 2nd time residing in Jamestown, Ky. My experience in Jamestown has been wonderful, the people are friendly and I'm surrounded by the most beautiful lakes. Jamestown has also been a great and safe place in raising my fourteen year old daughter too. 5 stars!

Small town, with almost no economy. However, I only came here to get an affordable education at the Somerset Community College.
It is quite, comfy place to live. It is a place where people still wave when passing and strangers still say hello. It is a town worthy of calling home.
