Williams is a community of approximately 5,200 people located in the heart of the Sacramento Valley, about 60 miles north of Sacramento and mid-way between the Sierras and the Pacific Coast. Williams is an agriculturally community growing rice, tomatoes, vine and seed crops, walnuts, almonds, hay, and grain. Cattle are raised in the area surrounding the city. Williams was founded in 1879 and was first known as Central. It was later renamed to honor William Williams, who gave much of the land for the town. -Adapted from the city's web site.
