1. James Mendenhall House and Mill Marker
Inscription. Built by James Mendenhall, for whom Jamestown was reportedly named. His family moved here from Chester, Pennsylvania, and built the house, a grist mill, and sawmill on the banks of the Deep River. The last Mendenhall occupant was Delphina Mendenhall, widow of George C. Mendenhall, James's grandson. After her death in 1881, ownership passed through a succession of millwrights. The site is now beneath City Lake, near the Penny Road Bridge.
 
Erected by Historic Jamestown Society.
