jamestown and woodsmill for website 029Hello, my name is Ray Gantt and I have been a resident of Jamestown Manor for the past 8 years.

Three months ago I came home to a flooded apartment. While it wasn’t anybody’s fault, it was still a very stressful situation.

Upon calling the maintenance department, the maintenance supervisor was at my apartment within minutes. Within an hour, additional maintenance personnel were brought in and they moved my belongings to a secure storage area.

They even started repairs to my apartment the very same day! While there was no obligation to do so, they even paid for me a hotel room for the next 3 days while repairs were completed and credited me rent for days I wasn’t able to live in my home.

I could not have asked for better service from either the maintenance or office staff but honestly this is what I have come to expect from my community at Jamestown Manor. As far as the repairs, my apartment looks even better than it did before.

Named in honor of James Mendenhall and founded in 1816, Jamestown, NC was the earliest continuing settlement in the Piedmont region. More recently, archeologists have found evidence of nearby human habitation dating back thousands of years.

A rich and varied history is the foundation for Jamestown today, which prides itself on protecting and enhancing our natural, cultural and historic resources for all to enjoy.

As early as 1701, the Keyauwee Indians were living in a village in this region. They enjoyed the area’s mild climate, abundant natural resources, and the fertile hunting grounds along the Deep and Uwharrie Rivers.

Part of a loose confederacy of 20 or more tribes, it is believed that by the 1760s, the Keyauwee had moved south close to the boundary between the two Carolinas where they were likely absorbed by the Catawba tribe.

By the late 1700s, European settlers came to Jamestown. Many were Quaker families who moved to the area from Pennsylvania in search of productive farmland. Among the original settlers was James Mendenhall, who established a farmstead near present day Jamestown in 1762. Though Mendenhall moved to Georgia in 1775, his son George remained, and by 1816, he founded the village of Jamestown in honor of his father.

The Mendenhall family, who owned and operated the area’s first grist and lumber mills, also owned much of the town’s original land. Today, High Point City Lake is situated where the original family farmhouse and land was located.

In 1781, during the Revolutionary War, British General Cornwallis’ army camped near the settlement and commandeered provisions from local farms and mills prior to his engagement with Nathaniel Greene’s troops at New Garden.

By 1800, Jamestown was a bustling settlement of 150 residents with its own post office, inn and Free Mason’s lodge. Around this same time, gold was discovered near Jamestown, and several mines profited until the California gold rush frenzy shut down local efforts.

In 1811, James Mendenhall’s son Richard, a local tanner, built the historic Mendenhall Plantation homestead, a highlight of any tour of Jamestown today.

In addition to farming and related industries, Jamestown was home to a gun factory, which manufactured a sturdy and accurate muzzle-loading gun known as the “Jamestown Rifle,” the mainstay of Jamestown’s industry through the latter half of the nineteenth century and a highly prized collectible among gun enthusiasts today.

During the Civil War, Jamestown’s Quakers, who opposed war and violence, attempted to remain neutral. However, the Confederacy demanded that those who were able to make shoes, uniforms, or weapons continue to do so or pay heavy taxes. Also, records indicate Confederate President Jefferson Davis and his entourage passed through Jamestown during its hasty retreat to the South after the Civil War ended.

Jamestown was also a known “stop” along the Underground Railroad, which helped fugitive slaves reach freedom in the North. According to local historical records, many Quaker homes in this area had a trap door leading to the basement to help slaves escape. Further, according to records, the Mendenhall and Beard families were instrumental in assisting in emancipation efforts.

Built in 1856, the railroad bisects Jamestown, and still provides a vital link for freight and some passengers between the port cities to the East and interior destinations.

jamestown and woodsmill for website 015My name is Hester Wright and I have recently moved back to Jamestown Manor.

I was a previous tenant for nine years before moving from the area.

Upon my return it was no question as to where I wanted to reside. Although I had been gone for several years, I found many of my past neighbors still living here. It’s the people that make Jamestown Manor a step above other apartment communities.

There is a sense of harmony among the neighbors and everyone knows you by name. The staff is excellent and always delivers what is promised. They never cease to exceed my expectations.

The apartments themselves are by far the best value in the area. I challenge anyone to find a better community to live at any price. If you are looking for a place to call home, you need not look any further than Jamestown Manor.

housefront-summer-300x215So many things to do and see in Jamestown, NC. One of which is the incredible Mendhenhall Plantation!

Built in the center of Old Jamestown, near the intersection of what were then known as Federal and Union Streets, Richard Mendenhall’s house served as a gathering place for residents and a stopover for travelers. This home exemplifies the community of Quaker tradespeople and farmers who actively opposed slavery, promoted education for all, and labored to create a life of peace and simplicity during troubled times.

The complex, with its 1811 house and fine old bank barn, cluster of outbuildings, and a tanning table where Richard Mendenhall carried on his tanner’s trade, is on the National Register of Historic Places. The barn houses a restored false-bottomed wagon used to transport slaves during the underground railroad movement.
