NOTES
Additional Information:This was the home of James Prentiss, briefly around 1907, and Oscar Wertheimer between c. 1911 and at least 1930. Prentiss, the son of prominent pioneer Theodore Prentiss, was a businessman. Wertheimer was the son of Herman Wertheimer, an important businessman. Wertheimer took over his father's company, the Watertown Grain Company and operated it in the twentieth century.

This house has some interest as the home of two second-generation businessmen in Watertown, James Prentiss and Oscar Wertheimer.
