Our Community

 Welcome to Jamestown, North Dakota!

Jamestown is a community with a rich past and a bright future. Jamestown’s central location at the intersection of I-94 and Highway 281, midway between Bismarck (the state capitol) and Fargo (the state’s largest city) makes this a great place to live, work and play. Located in the valley where the James and Pipestem Rivers meet, Jamestown offers a variety of recreational opportunities: from summer activities such as fishing, hunting and golfing to winter activities such as ice fishing, snowmobiling and cross country skiing. Jamestown is also home to The World’s Largest Buffalo, the National Buffalo museum and the North Dakota Sports Hall of Fame. Jamestown offers something for everyone.


Known as the “Pride of the Prairie,” Jamestown extends friendly hospitality to all visitors. Whether touring the Frontier Village and viewing our live herd of buffalo, visiting our historical sites, or joining us for a tournament at one of our sporting complexes, we are sure you will enjoy Jamestown. A year-round vacation area, Jamestown also offers a variety of entertainment, excellent motel accommodations and fine dining to make your stay an unforgettable experience.
