About Glen Williams

Real Estate Sales Representative with Johnson Associates Real Estate Ltd.,
As early as 1847, Glen Williams was described to be a ‘beautiful spot' by the British Wig" quotes historian Mark Rowe. Toronto Life magazine describes the Ontario hamlet as being a "visual feast".  With its historic buildings, artisan mill housing over thirty artists of all types, including a dedicated glass blowing studio, bakery and pub, one of the largest Canada Day celebrations in the country, the Glen has much to offer the weary traveler.

 Founded in 1883 by Benajah Williams, a United Empire Loyalist from New York, Glen Williams quickly grew to become a thriving community based on grist, lumber and woolen mills. Many of these buildings still exist today and make up the historic and quaint nature of the community. The old lumber and grist mill is home to artists, the general store where Timothy Eaton got his start is now a show case of Canadian folk along with hooked rugs and supplies. Come visit and meander  with the Credit river as it makes its way through this idyllic community which has so much to offer.
