The Watts Block originally built and presented to the Town of Thomaston by prominent shipbuilder Captain Samuel Watts in 1890, burned to the ground in 1915. Insurance monies plus a donation from Watt’s daughter, Mary Jane, allowed the town to immediately rebuild a new block, which still stands today on the southwest corner of Knox and Main Streets. The second floor serves as a town hall and meeting space. The town offices and police department are currently housed on the first floor along with a commercial retail space.
