Williamstown, NJ is a moderately sized community that resides in Monroe Township. Located in the northeast corner of Gloucester County, the town has been referred to as one of the “pine townships,” due to the wooded nature of the area. With both Philadelphia and Atlantic City less than an hour away, it’s a prime location in southern NJ to live and work.
Originally called Squankum, a Lenape term meaning “place where evil spirits dwell,” many believed it earned the moniker for the abundance of mosquitoes that resided in the area. Settled in 1737, the village consisted of only a few homes. In 1758 it was connected to Whitehall Mill thanks to new road construction, which allowed the town to grow. Early residents were hunters and loggers, but in 1830 the glass industry sprung up in the area creating a commercial boom.
Free Will Glass Manufacturing was the first company to bring new residents into town. The industry continued to flourish until the agricultural business took over in the early 1900’s. The John Sharp Canning Co. still operates today under the name Blue Ribbon.
Like much of the region, religion played a major role in early settlers lives. The first constructed church was operated by Quakers and the earliest faith was Methodist. Even the Roman Catholic faith had early roots in Monroe, as they used the old Town Hall to hold Mass.
Today Williamstown and Monroe Township are moving toward the future. With a growing population, the city has added more schools, a new fire and police station. Locals enjoy the many festivals and events throughout the year as well as a strong sense of community with their neighbors.
