Gibson Park is owned and operated by Guilford County. The 200 acre park pays tribute to the rifle makers who lived and worked in the Jamestown area during the mid 19th century. Rifle making was a chief industry and it is believed as many as 75 individuals manufactured the handcrafted muzzle-loaded rifles that came to be commonly known as the Jamestown longrifle. The park’s historic Deep River Cabin (circa 1800) and its hand-dug well remind visitors of the modest dwellings that dotted much of the Deep River valley prior to the Civil War.
NOTICE: The Bicentennial Greenway section staring at East Fork Road for approximately a 1/4 mile distance in the direction of Penny Road is closed for repairs and will reopen February 1st.
