Historic Watertown

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.
