Williamston is located in Ingham County’s northeastern corner along M-43, about two miles north of I-96. This historic town is situated on the Red Cedar River, and contains many well-preserved turn-of-the-century buildings. It is currently a popular visiting place for antique lovers, with many unique and quaint shops and stores in the vicinity. A park and dam on the Red Cedar can be found north of the main intersection.

Williamston was first settled by Hiram and Joseph Putnam in 1834, who moved here from Jackson, Michigan. They sold their land to O. B. Williams in 1839, who came here from Batvia, New York. He built a dam, saw mill and later a grist mill here, eventually platting the land in 1845, naming it after him. It was incorporated as a village in 1871, and later as a city in 1944.
