About Williams

Williams lies on the historic Route 66, located just one hour away from the Grand Canyon. It achieved its name from its founder, Bill Williams who discovered the area in 1881. Due to this, a statue named 'Old Bill' lives in Monument park, and the mountain which lies south of the town is named 'Bill Williams Mountain'.

The historic Downtown district covers six blocks, which boast a rich heritage and culture, plenty of memorabilia and quirky gifts galore.

Tourists flock to the city to explore the opportunity on offer and some take a road trip around the backways of Williams to check out the picturesque scenery and get up, close and personal with rare wildlife.
