Williamsburg, in the southwest part of Franklin County along Old Hwy 50 and I-35 with a population of 397 was established as a railroad town in 1868.  William Schofield and James F. Dane platted the town, and Schofield promoted a railroad, the Kansas City, Burlington, and Santa Fe, which ran down from Ottawa.  The Dan Fogle fmaily, who arrived in 1869, were important citizens, operating a general store and involving themselve in other local industries, such as coal mining.  At one time the Williamsburg Coal Company had a capacity of 25-30 tons of high grade coal a day which was marketed daily to consumers within a 20 to 50 miles radius.  There are several interesting homes and churches to veiw within the area.  In recent years, a barbeque resturant, Guy & Mae's Tavern, has brought state and regional recognition to the community.  Southwest of Williamsburg stood Silkville, a silk ribbon producing commune founded by Earnest Valeton de Boissiere, a wealthy native of Bordeaux, France.  Mulberry trees, planted to feed the silkworms, can still be seen.
