The unincorporated community is a census-designated place or CDP that is situated in the southeastern region of Gloucester County, New Jersey. It is located in the Monroe Township and spans 4750.72 acres. Its neighboring towns include Sicklerville, Cross Keys, and Glassboro. 


Before the Europeans settled in 1737, the area was home to the Lenape Native American Indian tribe. They had named the area Squankum, for which the Squankum Branch is still named. However, after the first post office was established, the town was renamed after Richard Penn's grandson, John Williams. Penn was a prominent landowner in the 18th century. He left his grandson the land that would later be divided into sections and sold to the settlers. 


The area is home to the Williamstown Farmers Market that was established in the 1950s before coming to the area in 1993. The founders were the Stoltzfus family from Lancaster County, PA. Some of the current vendors in addition to the Village Shoppes that can be found there include:
