The City of Jamestown was established in 1823 as a county seat for Fentress County. Jamestown was incorporated as a city in 1837. Both Fentress County and the City of Jamestown are named for prominent local politician James Fentress (1763–1843), who made the appeal for the new county to be carved out of Overton and Morgan counties.
During the American Civil War, Fentress County provided four companies for the Confederate Army and three for the Union Army. The notorious “Tinker Dave” Beaty formed his Union scout company in Fentress County to battle with the pro-Confederateguerrilla‘s led by Champ Ferguson. Neither of these companies were ever mustered into the armies they supported.
