Williamstown is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) located in Monroe Township in Gloucester County, New Jersey. The 2010 U.S. census counted 15,567 people, 5,592 households, and 4,037 families in the CDP.

In 2014, the community had a death rate from heroin that was 25 times the national average, with about five people per year dying of overdoses and other complications in the previous decade. The population of the town remained small until the early 1830s when the glass industry sprung up (Glassboro, a neighboring town, still bears the name borne of that commercial boom). The first company to form was called Free Will Glass Manufacturing and caused a population surge in the early 1900s. The town was officially incorporated in March 1859, with Williamstown as meeting place to vote and have town discussions. The Monroe Township Historical Society was formed as a volunteer organization on October 16, 1974, by Mayor John W. Sharp (of the Canning Company Sharps), dedicated to the preservation of items that reflect the history of Monroe Township. The first school was built in 1750 and stood where the Washington Hotel now stands. In the early eighteenth century, Richard Penn sold what eventually became Williamstown to his grandson, John Williams, who divided and resold the land in lots to settlers and for whom the town was eventually renamed.

History

Williamstown was originally known as 'Squankum' by the Lenni-Lenape tribe of Native Americans. In the early eighteenth century, Richard Penn sold what eventually became Williamstown to his grandson, John Williams, who divided and resold the land in lots to settlers. The town was officially incorporated as Monroe Township in March 1859, with Williamstown as meeting place to vote and have town discussions. The first school was built in 1750 and stood where the Washington Hotel now stands. In 2014, the community had a death rate from heroin that was 25 times the national average, with about five people per year dying of overdoses and other complications in the previous decade. The Monroe Township Historical Society was formed as a volunteer organization on October 16, 1974, by Mayor John W. Sharp (of the Canning Company Sharps), dedicated to the preservation of items that reflect the history of Monroe Township. One notable company, The John Sharp Canning Co., still operates today as Blue Ribbon. The area built its first high school in 1958, and the first municipal court was established in the Township of Monroe, in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 264 of the Laws of 1948.
