The Commander’s Mansion in Watertown is turning 150 years old this year and a big – and free – celebration is planned.
The community event will be held on Sunday, Sept. 13 from 1-4 p.m. at the mansion, located in the Arsenal on the Charles Complex.
The USS Constitution Color Guard will kick off our festivities, thanks to the Watertown Veterans’ Services Department. Enjoy some food, activities, games and Touch-A-Tank!
Step back in time with performances, tour the house and learn the history of the Watertown Arsenal from the Historical Society of Watertown. Docents will be in each of the rooms on the first floor speaking about the various historical aspects of the Arsenal.
Plus, the Revels and NewRep Theatre put on musical and historical re-enactments and dance performances.
The house will be open for self-tours. Both floors and are completely handicap accessible.
