Glen Williams

The dominant feature of Glen Williams is the Credit River as it snakes it way through the village. This is only fitting since the industries that once dominated this village were founded on the power of the waters of the Credit.

Glen Williams is a compact little village founded in 1825. Many of the buildings here are original, often dating to the 1840s and 1850s. That is the charm of this historic setting and its many businesses which offer visitors a relaxing, and interesting day out.

The former saw mill and electric power plant are now home to the Williams Mill Visual Arts Centre. Over 30 artists have their studios within the three-storey yellow mill, a protected historic building, restored to its original glory. The gallery has featured exhibits. Rebuilt after a forest fire in 1866, the mill sits on the site of the original building constructed by Charles Williams in 1825.

The former Beaumont Knitting Mill, built by Samuel Beaumont in 1878 is now home to the Beaumont Mill Antiques and Collectables market. This market offers antique and vintage glassware, pottery, furniture, paintings, and more from a variety of sellers.

On Main Street, the weary traveller can be refreshed with a cup of tea at the bakery or enjoy a stop in the new restaurant located in the heart of the village, once they have finished renovations. This building was built in 1856 by Charles Williams, it served as a general store and post office until 1971. The Wheeler family ran the store for the majority of that time.

Don’t miss the book store offering antiquarian tomes and ephemera. The old building was the shop where Timothy Eaton first learned his clerk and retail skills. The Glen Town Hall, built in 1871, and the local churches are more examples of the beautiful historic buildings in the village. Before you leave this charming village, make sure to venture up toward Clayhill Road and Tenth Line. Here you will find acres of trees and plants belonging to Sheridan Nurseries, the perfect place to brighten up your garden. In fact, you could actually take home a living part of Glen Williams.

You will recall Glen Williams with fond memories until your next visit.
