Jimtown was originally named Langrell, after early resident Richard T. Langrell, a sawmill owner who opened a store in the community in 1904. In 1910 Langrell sold the store to James H. Chandler, who ran it until 1916. He is the "Jim" for whom the town was renamed. Jimtown became the official name in a 1987 United States Board on Geographic Names decision.
