|Recent development of the Senator Bob Martin Eastern Agricultural Center in Williamston has helped spur an economy long dependent on agriculture. The Center has established Williamston as a destination for those attending horse shows, tractor pulls, motorcycle races, national entertainment acts, regional boat shows and more regional and national events. In addition to a 2400 seat arena, the center boasts a new 15,000 sq. ft. conference center that can accommodate up to 700 convention goers. With these new opportunities for growth and economic activities in the retail and service sector, the town has embarked on a mission to develop support businesses which compliment the new center and conference facilities. The Town recognizes the importance of meeting the needs of the diverse crowds that frequent the facilities. To this end, the town provides web access to available properties in the downtown and support to new business endeavors in the district.
