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.
Review Williamstown
Great place. Lots of culture and natural beauty, no traffic, no mega malls, several institutions of higher learning and great schools.
There are three bars, which is acceptable for a small town, but limits nightlife options considerably.
