Williamston was named for West Allen Williams, who owned several thousand acres of land in the area. Williams discovered a natural mineral spring on his property, and the town grew up around it. In the early 1800s, the community, known then as Mineral Spring, was a booming health resort. The townspeople renamed the town for Williams, who had discovered the spring of water which people believed had healing properties.
