Town of Williamston

Town of Williamston

The Upcountry

The Upcountry

Williamston was named for West Allen Williams, who discovered a natural mineral spring on his property. The town developed around this “miracle” mineral spring, whose water was believed to have healing properties and made the town a popular health resort in the early 1800s. The site where the mineral spring still exists is now Williamston Park, where the town holds the annual Spring Water Festival.
