Watertown Town Reviews

1 review
My family moved into Watertown 4 years ago. The draws were the school system, the housing market (property taxes are low) and all around growing community. There always seems to be something to do in town, both family friendly and adults. The community has worked together to save two wonderful landmarks in town so there is a lot of town pride. I highly recommend Watertown! Half way between Madison and Milwaukee so if you can't find a job in town or in the towns nearby Madison and Milwaukee aren't that far away.
