“Old Jamestown” first became a CDP (Census Designated Place) in 2010. This means that for data gathering Old Jamestown is treated much like a municipality instead of just being part of unincorporated St. Louis County. The population was 19, 184 at the 2010 census. The boundaries are: Missouri River on the north Cold Water Creek on the south, Highway 367 on the east and New Halls Ferry Road on the west. For more information, visit www.oldjamestownassn.org
The Old Jamestown Area is bounded by natural streams on the north and south. The Missouri River was the route of the Lewis and Clark expedition and Coldwater Creek was a clear, free flowing stream used by the early American Indians. The roads bounding the east and west begin in the City of St. Louis and extend from the Halls Ferry Circle to the Missouri River. They were used by early settlers to transport farm produce and merchandise to and from St. Louis.
The Old Jamestown Association researches and shares with residents, students, and others the areaâ€™s history, unique geological features, events, landmarks, and population; and facilitates communications between residents and the St. Louis County government and neighboring communities.
