History in a Pecan Shell

Very little is recorded of Jamestown’s early years. The Handbook of Texas has described it in 1936 as being “a factory, two other businesses, a church, a cemetery, and around thirty dwellings.” The 1948 population was 75 and the local school merged with the Van ISD in the early 1950s. Fifteen homes, a cemetery and clay pit were shown on 1950s maps – and in the 1970s the same number of dwellings were reported. The 1990 population of seventy-five has declined to the current 70 (2000).
