In 1811 Jonas Williams built a mill on Ellicott Creek at Glen Falls. This was the beginning of what would become the Village of Williamsville. Located where the main road from Batavia to Buffalo crossed Ellicot creek at Glenn Falls several mills and a stagecoach stop grew into a community and was incorporated as the Village of Williamsville in 1850.

3395.  Hitting this group of 4 Amherst BITs before my event, this evening on the way to 100/3400.  

I'm confused.  Am I in Amherst or Williamsville?  How to towns and villiages work up here?  In Maryland, we just have State > County > and city/town/etc (the latter is simply a matter of size).

Thanks and Happy Trails!

Oh, I might have the wrong cache for the FLW statue, but Rayman could be wrong too. Nope, never a reason to set foot inside there, all my traffic tickets have been in the Town, not the tiny Village. It is a nice histoic building though, thanks for pointing it out. And the statue, which I still think I'm right about which Bit Cache it was at. TFTC.

I tried to convince Yuck to cross at the signal light, but he insisted on running out into traffic and almost getting us run over. I think I spotted this one first, and afterwards marveled at the nearby carving of FLW. I've been in Williamsville Village Hall several times over the years for the Rite Aid and Hampton Inn I designed down the road.
