2. Historic Watertown Guided Tour. Built by Alexander for his furniture and undertaking business, though a clothing store replaced it by 1912. Stone trim was used for window sills and triangular lintels with side blocks. Pilasters pierce the cornice line and frame four groups of windows. Notice the brick molding and patterns.
