JAMESTOWN — Jamestown Tourism has launced the "It Takes a Village" donor campaign to raise funds for projects at Frontier Village.

Donations will be used for deferred maintenance and new attraction projects planned in 2023, said Alison Limke, visitor experience manager, Jamestown Tourism.

“Maintaining historic buildings, building new attractions and experiences and giving visitors a
great impression of Jamestown cannot be done by one entity alone,” she said.

Needed maintenance includes stagecoach repair, school house exterior painting, boardwalk and awning work, pony ring repairs and replacements.

New attractions in need of support include a recirculating milk cow, square dance interactive exhibit, prairie pollinator garden, horseshoe pits and interactive shooting gallery.


People can help by donating funds, arranging a service day with their company or volunteering, she said.

With more than 100,000 people estimated to visit annually, donations and support will be vital
to upkeeping and improving this site in Jamestown, Limke said.

Naming opportunities are also available. To donate or for more information, contact Limke or Emily Bivens, executive director, Jamestown Tourism, at 251-9145 or email
