There is a beautiful reservoir for swimming, boating, and fishing. Lots of parks and trails. The people are generally quite friendly. The town itself is quaint and the three white buffalo add character from native American folklore and history. Nice views from the hilltops and good place to raise children. Low crime rate but high teen pregnancy.

The open skies is something everybody always dreams of, the rolling storms are never really spoken of, everybody has their drives and passions, and everybody has somewhere to go. Jamestown is undgoing a verge of a developing economy. Good coffee, kind drivers, and a local university keeps jamestown simplicity at its finest. This town is like any, theirs a park, and a grocrey store. What makes it unique is the perseverance every body incourpates in to their lifes, just looking around you can see it. Jamestow is filled with so much beauty, I mean the rolling hills speak for themselves.
The area is too small for my liking. The only thing to do around here is drink and go to church. The local university is well respected, but it needs a lot of work (physically) that is. Do not attend the university if you do not play sports.
