Shawn, the caretaker/historian at Mendenhall Homeplace was so informative. Apparently the center of Jamestown was actually right there at Mendenhall Homeplace and that my town was named after James Mendenhall.

This 1811 Quaker home place served as a gathering place for local residents and a stopover for weary travelers. Richard Mendenhall even had a false-bottom wagon to transport slaves for the Underground Railroad. Every year on the 3rd Saturday in July they have a Village...More
