History, Culture, Shopping & Charm

  • Each of the shops offers unique products, and the summer farmer's market provides fresh produce, baked goods, crafts and artisans.
  • Jefferson County enjoys a lower cost of living index than most of the United States and features housing that is well below national averages: affordable for just about any income.
  • Downtown is the actual center of Watertown and provides easy access to everything from fitness to education.

  • In 2012, Watertown was named by USA Today as a runner-up to being the most patriotic small town in America.
Small City ExperienceSmall City Experience

Small City Experience

Large cities are impersonal. Small towns have little to offer. Downtown Watertown offers the perks of living in a city with the connectedness of a small town where people know your name. Experience a city life with a slower pace. We think it is the best of both worlds.

Four Seasons to ExperienceFour Seasons to Experience

Four Seasons to Experience

Experience vivid greens, fragrant flowers and rafting in the spring. Get out for some walking or biking in the summer. Take in the fall foliage with its canvas of colors and the crunch of the leaves under your feet. Glistening white snow and skiing beckon you in the winter. 4 seasons, 1 beautiful downtown.
