About the fortstjames.com web portal:
This domains, as well as fortstjames.net,.org, info and fsjames.com (since 1999), were transferred to Area250 in 2014, and they all redirect to fortstjames.com to maintain continuity and email service for local people.
Area 250 continues to promote this town and its surroundings, both today and in the future.
The site is privately maintained and not publicly sponsored; however, the Google advertising you may see help to cover some of the costs of hosting.
I don’t get paid to maintain or update this blog; it’s more of a pastime to keep me sharp at what I’ve been doing for the past 25 years or so.
Contact email@example.com if you’d like to place an ad or simply make a donation to assist cover costs.
Affordable ads for local businesses only, starting in 2022.
You can have a more prominent embedded ad on any page of our site that is not affected by ad-blocker software on viewer’s browsers, such as the Area250 and grocery advertisements on the Home page, for as little as $50 per year.
Mail – @fsjames.com is being phased out. The mail service was given free of charge and fsjames.com had been discontinues for over 8 years.
Existing users are urged to have another second email account that we can redirect your mail to
The last site update was done April 2022, the last total update of this site was in 2020 and minor updates are always in progress. Many of the links you may remember are gone, businesses have closed, people have moved away (there’s barely anything left of this town) and some websites are now obsolete. The links you see now are as current as possible. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you see an error, or think something should be added.
Cafe and restaurant owners will get their menus posted under the Local Dining tab on the front page absolutely free. Just give me a copy of your current menu to scan or email a PDF of it to the contact below.

Let’s make something perfectly clear. I’ve heard people complain that fortstjames.com has too many Google ads so they stopped using it. Put an ad blocker on your browser if you don’t want to see Google ads! This site costs over $500 a year in hosting and registration fees to keep up. Plus all the labour involved. Complain about out of town Google business ads all you like, but in 23 years local businesses have paid less than $100 in total to post ads. Google ads help a little.
