A tiny town located about 10 minutes off the 401, or 25 minutes northeast of Cornwall.
Although small, it is packed with history. The Nor'Westers and Loyalist Museum offers a look at local history and the fur trade. The Sir John Johnson Manor House offers more local history, interesting architecture, and houses the archives for the region. There are also two beautiful old churches.
The second weekend in August, Williamstown becomes packed for the oldest ongoing annual fair in Canada. Running through the town is the Raisin River, which hosts a canoe race every spring, when it becomes extremely fast-flowing!
The County building is still used but not the old ways. Part of it was re-built and operates as a jail and court house. In front of the building there are several things on display from the old "County Building" This old cannon was used on ships and was brought in from the eighteen century.
When you look at the image, you might see that the cannon has no wheels or a base. It is sitting on a concrete base which was built later in the nineteenth century. Only to hold the cannons. There are two of these cannons in front of the old building.
