A Name You Can Trust
First, it has been owned and operated by the same family since 1947. That was the year that Evan and Evelyn Williams started what was then known as Williams Trailer Sales near Columbus, Ohio. As one of the first manufactured home retailers in central Ohio, the Williams’ were industry pioneers who quickly became known for honesty, integrity and a passion for making customers happy. That philosophy helped build a thriving business that was moved east to Frazeysburg, Ohio in 1970 as another generation of the Williams family continued on the tradition of Evan and Evelyn. Today, it is managed by the Williams’ grandsons, Evan and Jack Atkinson.
Evan and Jack learned and embraced the Williams’ philosophy of treating customers like members of their own family. They continue to operate with honesty and integrity, with the goal of making home ownership not only possible, but also easier to attain than ever before. At Williams-Burg Square, you will find an attentive staff with the information you need and a heart-felt desire to help you find the home of your dreams.
And what of the red caboose that has become the company’s symbol? It was brought to the Frazeysburg home center in 1970 to represent the mid-western values and strong heritage upon which the company was built. It served as the only sales office until 1984 when growth led to construction of the current Frazeysburg sales center.
