Treaty Day: a Commemoration of the Declaration of Independence and Treaty of Watertown

Tuesday, July 18, 2023
5:00 - 6:30 PM
Watertown Senior Center
31 Marshall Street
Watertown, MA 02472

This annual event returns in a new, in-person format for the first time since the onset of the pandemic.  Join the HSW at the air-conditioned Senior Center for a slideshow presentation on the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence to the citizens of Watertown and the signing of the Treaty of Watertown on July 18 and 19, 1776, respectively.  The treaty was the first signed by the newly-formed United States with a foreign power, namely the St. John's (aka Maliseet) and Mi'kmaq Tribes of Nova Scotia.  The significance of both documents and the role played by the Edmund Fowle House during this period of American history will be discussed.

A basket for donations of non-perishable food items to the Watertown Food Pantry will be available.

The HSW appreciates the assistance of the Watertown Senior Center in hosting this event.

This program is free and open to the public.
