First settled by the Keyauwee people in the early 18th century, villagers enjoyed the abundant natural resources and fertile grounds that Jamestown offered before likely being absorbed by the Catawba tribe. Quakers came to the area by the end of the 18th century to establish the early settlement of Jamestown as a farming community. This community was the campsite of General Cornwallis before his Revolutionary War engagement with Nathanael Greene's troops in modern-day Greensboro. Residents continued to prosper in the 19th century, as gold was discovered nearby. Prior to the Civil War, Jamestown was one of the many stops that fugitive slaves used on their way to freedom along the Underground Railroad. Many of Quakers had trap doors to their basements that helped slaves escape.
