History Press: Book, 'Images of America: Williamstown'
Images of America: Williamstown The cultural landscape of Williamstown has been strongly influenced by the settlers who traveled far and wide to get there. Originally, a large number of Scots, French Canadians, and Italian craftsmen were lured to the west hills of Vermont to take advantage of the promising granite quarries. Williamstown used many of its natural resources to develop into a small, thriving community. Today, the village still has its classic white churches and small stores where residents once gathered with their neighbors to socialize and share local news. The expanded rural areas outside the village have retained much of what they once had, including historic farmhouses, open fields, stone walls, and Ainsworth State Park in the Williamstown Gulf.
