Home > Things to Do > Visit Historic Towns > Jamestown

Jamestown is located on the Highway 108/49 corridor and is the first town you encounter when entering Tuolumne County from the west. It’s the spot where gold was first discovered in the County. Several of the town’s buildings that date back to the 1870s and 1880s are occupied by quaint historic inns, restaurants, shops and even wine tasting rooms of local vineyards. Take a stroll along the Walk of Fame, a walkway stretching between Rocca Park, downtown, and Railtown 1897 State Historic Park that’s dotted with artistic medallions featuring many of the movies and TV shows filmed in the local area.
