I grew up in Williamstown in the 80s and 90s and things have certainly changed since then.

When I was about four, my family made the move from the bustling metropolis of Collings Lakes (where, to this day, nothing has changed since then) up to Williamstown, where I stayed for decades.

When I was a kid, Radix was a new school, Oak Knoll was still a middle school. Acme was on the Pike and then it moved down the Pike a bit further. McDonald's and Geets Diner were the (only) hang-out spots. We played Little League at Owens Field, which was literally just a couple of baseball fields in the middle of the woods. Riding your bike down Blue Bell and Corkery was pretty scary but you did it anyway.

Not too long ago, I was thinking about what used to be where in and around Williamstown and I had a lot of fun coming up with this list of things you might remember.
