Jonestown was originally settled in 1761 by William Jones under the name of Williamsburgh. After his death in 1771, the name was changed to Jonestown to distinguish itself from other Williamsburgs in the colonies.  Jonestown residents are proud ‘Vikes’ living in the Northern Lebanon School District – go Vikings!  It is our vision to share the beauty of small town living and to help promote a community of friends and neighbors through locally sponsored events that are held in our community park and town square.  We are proud to say that not only do we support our military veterans but that Jonestown is home to many military families that have members who are serving with the Army and Air Force National Guards at Fort Indiantown Gap.
