The restoration of downtown Watertown has proceeded steadily over the years, but there is always a challenge waiting in the wings.
The list of restored properties and new businesses is long but remaining old and unused buildings stand out.
There is hope for two of them. Obviously plans are afoot for the Woolworth Buildling, but the purchase of the Lincoln Building by local businessman Brian Murray is a very positive development.
Mr. Murray is a local success story who has breathed life into several structures including the Agribultural Insurance Building..
While plans for the Lincoln Building are in their infancy, its good to see the structure in the hands of someone committed to doing something positive with it.
