About Jamestown

Jamestown is a city in Stutsman County, North Dakota in the United States. It is the county seat of Stutsman CountyGR6. The population was 15,527 at the 2000 census, making it the seventh largest city in North Dakota. Jamestown was founded in 1872.

The local newspaper is the Jamestown Sun. Jamestown Regional Airport serves the city. Jamestown is home to Jamestown College, a private, four-year, Presbyterian liberal arts institution on the city's north side. On the south side of the city sits the North Dakota State Hospital. This hospital treats patients with psychiatric disorders, as well as serving as the state's holding facility for dangerously mentally-ill inmates. On the west side of the city and almost adjacent to the site of historic Fort Seward is The Anne Carlsen Center for Children (formerly known as the "Crippled Children's School"). A privately funded residential school, it has long been one of the country's leading centers for treatment and education of severely handicapped children. Jamestown was the first city in America to require wheelchair cutouts in newly-constructed sidewalk curbs.

K-12

Jamestown is served by the Jamestown Public Schools. The system operates five elementary schools, one middle school, one high school, and one alternative high school. Louis L'Amour Elementary School is named for the popular western writer Louis L'Amour who was born in Jamestown. There are also two private elementary schools in Jamestown; Saint John's Academy, a K-6 Catholic school, and a Seventh Day Adventist school.

The Jamestown High School Marching Band has been recognized nationally for many years, travelling to many locations around the United States.

Culture

Jamestown is the home of the World's Largest Buffalo. This cement statue, originally built as an art class project by a group of Jamestown College students in 1958, now overlooks the city as the centerpiece of a tourist attraction called the Frontier Village. The Village is also home to the National Buffalo Museum and houses White Cloud, an albino buffalo, considered a sacred and lucky omen by many Native Americans. White Cloud lives with her daughter, Princess Winona, amongst a herd of fellow buffalo.

Much of the city's cultural life revolves around Jamestown College, and the Jamestown Arts Center in downtown Jamestown, a home-grown art gallery and performance space that showcases regional visual arts and local performers.

Recently a local group of artists in collaboration with the city's tourism board have begun work on a modern art piece that would turn the world's largest buffalo statue into the world's largest Chia Pet, this project is known as Chiaffalo.
