The Adopted Farmhouse Coffee Co

The Adopted Farmhouse Coffee Co. is located right on the square in historic Watertown, TN.

The Adopted Farmhouse Coffee Co is a give back farmhouse style coffee shop and bakery with a heart for adoption in historic downtown Watertown.

Our goal at The Adopted Farmhouse Coffee Co. is to provide connections for adopting families, and the community that we are a part of. With a huge heart for adoption ourselves, we believe others will want to join us in supporting your family’s adoption. We also want to establish additional support systems locally because we all need additional support in the adoption community. Long term, we hope to lessen and maybe even completely remove some barriers that stand in the way of incredible families bringing their adopted children home.

Historic Watertown

Historic Watertown, Inc. is comprised of people who celebrate Watertown’s history and encourage the growth and economic development of Watertown, Tennessee.

We are dedicated to collecting and preserving the material culture and genealogy that illustrates the story of our city and of her people, and hope you will join us meeting these goals. We are a non-profit 501(c) (3), incorporated in January 1991. Our mission is to preserve and rehabilitate the rich architectural heritage of the City of Watertown and to provide opportunities to revitalize the economic foundation of our historic district.

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.

Historic Watertown opened the Atwood Welcome Center in 1995. The displays in the Archives, located in the Welcome Center, offer insight into the town's military, business, and educational history. The Welcome Center also offers convenient restroom facilities for the town's visitors. Historic Watertown continues to maintain the Welcome Center and make additions to the displays.
