Williamstown is a small but quaint town located in the north west corner of MA. Living in Williamstown means living in a safe town that rarely has any trouble with violence or crimes. I've lived in Williamstown my whole life and have never felt scared. As well as this Williamstown has great resources such as The Clark Art Institute and The Williamstown Theater Festival. Overall, Williamstown may be small but it has so much good going for it!

Went there for vacation visiting a family member. Williamstown is a nice quiet place, but the quality of the buildings are not really eye opening or impressive.
Great place. Lots of culture and natural beauty, no traffic, no mega malls, several institutions of higher learning and great schools.
