The Town of Jamestown is located in Boulder County, Colorado, 12 miles northwest of the City of Boulder. It was incorporated in 1883, after gold was discovered near Jim Creek in the 1870s. The Town has a population of approximately 300 people. Within our Town is Jamestown Elementary School, one of the few remaining “one-room” schools in the country; the Jamestown Mercantile (presenting live music every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night); and the Jamestown Community Church. Jamestown experienced a traumatic flood event on September 11, 2013 that lasted for three days. During this event we not only lost 13% of the homes in town, 50% of the roads, our water plant and the JVFD Fire Station, but we lost a much-loved patriarch of our Community, Joe Howlett. As a result of the flood, 90% of our community was forced to relocate. Since the flood, we have been working diligently toward our town’s recovery.
