Since 1991, we, in cooperative efforts with the City of Watertown and the Watertown-East Wilson County Chamber of Commerce, have made great progress. Past major projects include having the Watertown Square placed on the National Register of Historic Places, commencing work on a Railroad Park, establishing a railroad siding and lighting, and restoring our Town Square with sidewalks and lights. Outstanding public programs include the Watertown Music and Arts Festival and Mile-Long Yard Sales, and many excursion train events in connection with the Tennessee Central Railroad Museum, such as Valentine Murder Mystery, Bunny and Polar Express Trains.? Our current project is the construction of a covered pavilion near the railroad for a traditional farmers market as well as a tool for agritourism.

We all have affection for the town we grew up in or have adopted as our own. We want you to share in Watertown’s success by becoming a member of Historic Watertown, Inc. You can download a membership form here (PDF file format requires Adobe Reader). Also, please join us for our monthly meetings – Historic Watertown, Inc. meets the first Monday night of each month in the Watertown-Wilson County Library.? Watertown is “Right on Track” and “Still Rolling Ahead” – and we’d like you to join us for the ride.
