Can you Guess?!

So did you guess what town this is…

or at least, where it is located?


Watertown is a city in the state of New York and in Jefferson County. It is situated approximately 20 miles south of the Thousand Islands;  72 miles northeast of Syracuse, New York; and 31 miles south of the Ontario border. And is near the US Army Post, Fort Drum.
Named after the many falls located on the Black River, the city developed early in the 19th century as a manufacturing center. It is the smallest city to have a park designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the celebrated landscape architect who created Central Park in New York City.
The city is known as the birthplace of the Five and dime, the safety pin, and is the home of Little Trees air fresheners. It manufactured the first portable steam engine. It has the longest continually operating county fair in the United States and holds the Red and Black football franchise, the oldest surviving semi-professional team in the United States.



Why am I posting about this town?

Because we will be moving there soon!!!

The story to come...
