History:  

WATERTOWN, first settled in 1856, organized April 13, 1858, received this name "because of the township's large water supply," by five or six lakes and the South fork of the Crow River. The city of Watertown, located on the Crow River, platted in 1858, was incorporated February 26, 1877. It merged with Chanhassen Township on May 8, 1967. A number of industries developed there, including sorghum, saw, and flour mills, plow works, hotels, a creamery, and a brewery; it had a station of the Electric Short Line. Its post office was established in Hennepin County in 1856 and moved to Carver County in 1857.
