Jamestown is a scenic island that sits in the middle of Narragansett Bay connected by bridges to Narragansett and Newport. It is approximately 9 miles long by 1 mile wide and has numerous ocean access points, as well as two waterfront state parks.
Attractive as both a year round and summer retreat, Jamestown has a mix of houses and condominiums to accommodate any lifestyle. Though it’s easily presumed to be isolated, Jamestown is actually well structured and equipped with a market, food stores, and all that is needed for in-town errand running. The center of Jamestown echoes a traditional colonial village with a variety of shops and restaurants. The town has an elementary and middle school, while high school children attend North Kingstown High School. Jamestown’s historic Beavertail Lighthouse and Museum offers panoramic views of Narragansett Bay and has a proud heritage as the third oldest lighthouse in North America.
Jamestown contains many beautiful neighborhoods including: Beavertail, the Village, West Ferry, Shoreby Hill, the Dumplings, South and North End.
