Dulles State Office Building

From Jefferson County NY Wiki
The Dulles State Office Building was built on Washington Street in 1970. It was named for John Foster Dulles, a Watertown native who served as Secretary of State to Dwight Eisenhower. It houses New York State government offices for the northwest region of New York State. The eleven story building is Watertown's tallest structure.

The adjoining auditorium was for years host to the Miss New York State Pageant until 2005, when the pageant was moved to Long Island. The auditorium and building's lobby are host to many functions throughout the year, including dances, symphony concerts and some notable yearly events, such as the Watertown Goes Green Irish Festival.
