What We Do
The Watertown Historical Commission was established in 1985 to preserve, protect, and advocate for the Town’s historical or archaeological resources. Our responsibilities include implementing the Demolition Delay Ordinance, researching places of historic or archaeological value, educational outreach to the community, building upon the base of historic knowledge already in existence, and establishing long-lasting protection of these resources for future generations. The Commission cooperates with the Massachusetts Historical Commission and the State Archaeologist and renders opinions and recommendations to the Town Council, Town departments, and the public. Consider a historic plaque for your home.
The Watertown Historical Commission Preservation Awards can be awarded to any individual, organization or project that has contributed to the preservation or recognition of Watertown's Historic resources.
Nominations are currently being sought for the 2014 Watertown Preservation Awards. All completed 2014 nomination forms must be received at the Watertown Historical Commission Office, Administration Building, 149 Main Street, 3rd Fl., Watertown no later than May 5, 2014 in either hard copy or electronically.
The Preservaton Awards Ceremony will be held on
