Glen Williams was established in 1833 by Benajah Williams. He used the Credit river to power his saw & flour mills. Later in 1839 a woolen mill was constructed. It burnt down and later was re-constructed and made to be 2 1/2 stories. Today the mills although not functioning still play a major role in Glen Williams; they house the Williams Mill Visual Arts Centre, the Beaumont Mill & Antiques & Collectibles and Glen Williams Glass. The studios bring many tourists and provide a place for local vendors to display and sell their work. They are worth checking out.
Aside from the arts Glen Williams has its own Public School, churches, parks with baseball diamonds & trails, pubs, bakeries and even a fitness studio.
If your around the Glen on Canada day don't miss out on their prized event Canada Day In The Glen. The main street is decorated, there is a parade, all day events, a duck race and even fireworks and movies in the park come sunset.
Glen Williams is a community within a community that will make you feel at home!
