Watertown

Overview

About WatertownWatertown embraces the arts with outdoor concerts, stage performances and displays from local artists, most notably those housed in the striking edifice devoted to wildlife artist Terry Redlin, who grew up in the town and painted there up until the time of his retirement.

Redlin sculpted the gallery and grounds to pay homage to the landscapes that inspired his much-loved images. These same landscapes also foster year-round camping, fishing and hunting pursuits, particularly on Lake Pelican and Lake Kampeska, which the Santee Sioux named for the shiny shells found along its shores.

The restored Goss Opera House , on the corner of Kemp Avenue and Maple Street, contains art galleries and exhibit space; for information phone (605) 878-4677.
