Williamstown is a small town, people mostly keep to themselves. It's a nice community settled between mountains of the Appalachian Trail. Good for people who like a little distance between themselves and others.

Small town experience. Very few local businesses and jobs, but most major retailers and employers available within 45 minutes. Low housing prices.
Very safe area, crime is so rare that it is big news when it happens. A good neighbor vibe and people you can count on in a pinch. Nothing much to do here except hike, four wheel, and team sports. A small privately owned shop and a bar, as well as a Dollar General are the biggest businesses in town.
