Williamstown City

The beginning of Williamstown City was a municipal borough, created on 14 March 1856. Its area was 11.3 sq km. The township, 8 km in a direct line from central Melbourne, was twice that distance by road or rail (1859). Both transport routes passed through Newport and Spotswood in the north of the borough, which were sparsely inhabited until the 1880s.
