Images of America: Jamestown

By James C. Buttrick with the Jamestown Historical Society, photos from the JHS collection.

Jamestown’s history has ranged from sheep farming to gilded-age resorts to military installations for coastal defense. Buttrick tells the story of these chapters in the island’s history up to the 1940s in compelling photographs that document the many changes in landscape, views, buildings, and activities that have occurred over time.
