2. Historic Watertown Guided Tour. Designed by Maurice Hockman. The Plattis Automobile Company showroom was here for a short time in the 1920s. It averaged four cars in stock. Dr. Hervey Tarbell’s office was on the second floor into the 1920s, when the Shaw-Messer Funeral Service moved in, operating into the 1990s. Featuring Kasota Stone trim, the building has Hockman-typical decorative motifs, including brick dentils, molding, pilasters, stone voussiors, and quoins.
