Frytown is an unincorporated community and census-designated place in Johnson County, Iowa, United States, about 10 miles southwest of Iowa City. The town has been known as Frytown since the 19th century, and is listed as such on state maps, although the U.S. Geological Survey calls it Williamstown.[1]
