Journey into Watertown Square Through Time

Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Watertown resident Cara Marcus’ new book Watertown Square Through Time (Arcadia Publishing, 2018) will lead you on a journey through the heart of our town. Through a narrated show of photographs, illustrations, and maps from the book, we will witness over three hundred years in the life of Watertown Square and its Delta, the Charles River, Main Street and adjourning roads, and get a glimpse of businesses, transportation, monuments, and events that you may never have known about. You’ll be sure to learn new things about the history of our town center. Books will be available for sale and to borrow from the library. Cara Marcus is a librarian, author, instructor and artist. As Resource Center Manager for the National Rural Transit Assistance Program, she oversees a library of hundreds of training and technical assistance publications. Cara is a member of the Watertown Art Association and the Historical Society of Watertown, and has served on local and national library advisory boa
