Williston originally developed as a railroad station and then as a village and later city to serve the agricultural community surrounding it.

The discovery of oil and gas reserves in the 1950s and the subsequent exploration and lignite mining brought another important source of revenue to the town, which has continued its expansion over the decades.

Tourism is also important in the area, with hunting and birding in the countryside, the history of the frontier around the town, and the man-made Lake Sakakawea nearby.

The wages are almost exactly the same as the state average at $28,664, according to 2004 statistics.
