Jamestown is a ghost town in Morrow County, in the U.S. state of Ohio.[1]

History[edit]

Jamestown had its start when James Bailey opened a store there.[2] Appleton Rich had a blacksmith's in the town as well. Allen Kelly bought the shop from Bailey, opened a tannery, and a post office, of which he was the postmaster. Kelly later sold the store, at which point the town became a ghost town.[3]
