The Watertown center is approximately 1 mile north of Watertown Municipal Airport and 11 miles northeast of Tyranena Brewing Company.

Water power is what first drew New England settlers to the area of what would become known as the city of Watertown. Situated around a deep bend of the Rock River in southeast Wisconsin, the power of waterfalls was first harnessed for mills and then for electricity. Today, Watertown is the largest city of the Watertown-Fort Atkinson micropolitan area, which includes nearby Johnson Creek and Jefferson as well. More from this guide...

In the late 1800s, a large influx of German immigrants was readily welcomed by Watertown residents for their industry and similar values. In 1856, the first kindergarten in the U.S. was established in Watertown, and we still use the word — which means "children's garden" in German — today. Over the decades, Watertown became a hub of commerce and industry and is still a connecting point for two major cities. The capital of Madison lies less than an hour west of Watertown, while the city of Milwaukee on Lake Michigan is about an hour to the east.

Verified reviews of the city: Watertown, WI

Below are reviews of the city of Watertown, WI from an actual visitor's perspective.

"Beautiful area"
Score 5.0 / 5

It was a beautiful rural area.

Crystal M., from 01-Oct-2019
"Friendly Area"
Score 5.0 / 5

Most of people are very friendly, just like you're an old resident that's been away and come back home. The Octagon House, of course. By the way, your website says the hotel is near the Octagon House. That is quite a misleading statement. They are actually on opposite sides of town. You should review that part of your website. Also, Mullen's Dairy is a Must-Visit!

Janan V., from 26-Jul-2019
The average traveler rating of the city of Watertown, WI shown above is 5.0 out of 5 based on 2 reviews
