Westbrook Mill

Jamestown, on Farm Road 1012 seventy-five miles northeast of Beaumont in western Newton County, in 1911 received a post office, named for longtime resident, merchant, and first postmaster James W. Westbrook. Jamestown's population consisted largely of timber workers, farmers, and stock raisers. Its post office was discontinued after 1930, and its population, estimated at fifty in the mid-1930s, peaked during the 1960s at 130. In 1990 it was estimated at seventy, where it remained in 2000.
