The Watertown's City Hall stood from 1895 to 1966, when it was eventually torn down as part of urban renewal.

Host Kelly Burdick tells the story of old City Hall, from when city council approved D.D. Keiff’s architectural plans, to Mayor J.B. Wise’s dedication address in 1887, to the many structural problems that plagued the building almost from the start.
