In 1989, former Silver Palate partner, the late John Werner, and his wife, artist Carrie Brown, chanced upon the store, located just north of Healdsburg in the heart of Alexander Valley, while visiting from New York City. Soon after learning that it was for sale, the couple bought Jimtown and immediately set out to restore the abandoned landmark to its former glory and add a few twists of their own.
Fashioned into a celebration of Americana, Jimtown reopened on Memorial Day weekend, 1991. One of the creations from this culinary oasis is Jimtown Olive Spread, which is has developed a life of its own. Oliver’s is pleased to offer Jimtown Store products to our customers.
