In 1953, Guy and Esther Gernt Jordan began building the Jordan Motel, which is located on Hwy. 127 near Jamestown, TN in the heart of what is now, trail riding country. The motel consists of three buildings with a total of twenty-seven units, two apartments, and living quarters for the manager. A two-story apartment building was added in 1983 to the south of the second building. The original sign with neon and a ca. 1956 swimming pool are located directly to the east of the office. The property has been owned by the Vaughn family since 1978. The restaurant on the property burned in 1990.
The Jordan Motel is currently owned and operated by Freddie and Cissy Vaughn Paul.
