Dating back to 1630, Watertown has a long and interesting history, some of which can still be seen. Watertown Cable Access Television has been producing segments for history lovers, which can be accessed on the WCATV website.
The segments have been created by WCA-TV’s Dan Hogan and Andrea Santopietro as part of their Watertown Weekly News program. All of the videos are less than 7 minutes long.
The Abraham Browne House near the new Police Station, is featured in one piece. The house was built in the late 1600s and early 1700s, and was saved and restored beginning in 1919 after nearly falling apart.
Another segment documents the Catholic Mount Auburn Cemetery, which is a separate entity from Mount Auburn Cemetery where about 23,000 residents were buried on about 7 acres of land.
Watertown Cable also toured the Armenian Museum of America, and shows some of its 20,000 items in the piece.
Videos are added as they are made, with the next one expected within a couple weeks. See these and more segments on the WCA-TV site. Follow this link to see them: http://wcatv.org/tag/historicwatertown/
