In 2010, several bronze plaques commemorating historic sites in Watertown were stolen, including the plaque dedicated to United States Supreme Court Justice Benjamin Robbins Curtis of Watertown.  The Historical Society of Watertown has replaced the missing plaque with one made of etched black granite.  Funding was provided through grants from the Watertown/Harvard and Watertown/O'Neill Properties Community Enrichment Fund and the Watertown Community Foundation Riverfront Mini-Grants Program.

After the plaque is unveiled, join Historical Society of Watertown President Marilynne Roach, Watertown Historical Commission Chair David Russo and Historical Society Councilor Joyce Kelly for a 1.5 hour walking tour focusing on the history of the Charles River in the Watertown Square area.

This program is free and open to the public.
