Agricultural Building

From Jefferson County NY Wiki

Agricultural Insurance Building[edit | edit source]

The Agricultural Insurance Company was founded in 1853 and was once a major employer in Watertown. The company opened its first offices in Washington Hall. Growth forced the company to move in the 1870's and relocated its offices to the Marble Block. In the 1880's, the company built its own office building on Washington Street. The company built the current neoclassic building in 1923. Today, the building is home to the Smith Barney Investment firm, Scherzman & Wise Attorneys and several smaller companies.
