Excerpt from Historical Sketch of the Town of Watertown: Commemorating the Two Hundred and Seventy-Fifth Anniversary of Its Settlement as an English Colony, Embracing a Detailed Account of the Limits of the Town and the History of the Old Mill and the Great Bridge

The town of Watertown has just passed another quarter-century milestone of its history. It is eminently fitting that it should take note of the fact. Faith in its noble origin, its progressive life, its promising future alike commend a brief retrospect of its course so far and an attempt to learn from its progress to this point what its onward course may be made. Clearness of vision is of no greater value to the engineer who is laying out the line of a great railway into an undeveloped country than to the men of affairs who are shaping the policy of a civic community in the early stages of its growth.

Watertown although two hundred and seventy-five years from its first settlement as an English colony is yet in the condition of undeveloped youth. Its natural advantages although early recognized in embryo have not begun to be realized in their possible relations.

Let us recount to ourselves some of the facts accomplished, look over the new works now being undertaken that show still the fresh spirit of enterprise natural to a vigorous youth, and take heart for newer and broader and greater efforts for the future.

Possibly it will be found that there is profitable employment for the farthest-sighted among us as well as for the skill and the labor of the humblest dweller within our borders in doing his level best in developing the possibilities of the town as a delightful residence, a beautiful home of culture and refinement for those engaged in the great life of a great intellectual and business center in this corner of our growing country.

The river running through our town was first called Charles River by John Smith who made a voyage along our coast in 1614.
