Also see . . .  Historic Watertown Guided Tour. Maurice Hockman may have been the architect. The Home Furniture Company was here until the 1930s. The pressed, rounded brick which delicately frames the large original windows of this building is a unique feature. (Submitted on August 21, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
