Jamestown

Jamestown, an abandoned and vacated town plat, founded at some time within the first quarter of a century of the county’s history, on the National Road, in Van Buren Township, having been described as lying just twenty miles east of Terre Haute, or one mile east of Harmony, between the plat of the later Llewellynsville and McKinley’s. When and by whom it was founded does not appear from the records. There remains upon the site no tangible evidence of Jamestown’s having existed elsewhere than on parchment and in memory.
