Welcome to Jamestown!
The site of the first gold find
in Tuolumne County, Jamestown was
first known as Woods Crossing.
It was renamed Jamestown in honor
of Col. James, who wined and dined
the townsfolk, before falling on bad
times and disappearing with their money.
While visiting, be sure to go see the
Sierra Railroad Museum. There's great
food and a variety of excellent lodging.
