Our extensive newspaper collection spans the 19th and 20th centuries
and is now easily accessible to the public online, and on our research
computer at the museum. The digitized collection includes 53 years
of the Town Times (1947-2000), an issue of the Watertown Argus from
1937, many issues of the Watertown News from 1913-1929, and several
issues of the Watertown Post, the Watertown Journal, and The Post
Boy from the 19th century. Stop in and spend some time exploring
this great collection.

We would also like to thank the Watertown Library, the Connecticut
State Library and the Buckingham Family for allowing us to borrow
their Watertown newspapers. However, we are still missing a few
issues of the Town Times and many more issues from the other newspapers.
Please contact the museum at (860) 274-1050 if you have any old Watertown newspapers that you
would like to donate or let us borrow, scan, and then return to
