Welcome to Watertown

Maranatha is located in the city of Watertown, which sits on the banks of the winding Rock River in southeastern Wisconsin. Watertown, with a population of more than 23,000, offers a friendly, small-town atmosphere with convenient access to Milwaukee and Madison.

Founded in 1836, Watertown is the home of both the historical Octagon House and America’s first kindergarten. The town also offers unique restaurants and convenient shopping options including a Super Wal-Mart and the nearby Johnson Creek outlet mall. The Watertown area also has several hotels. Watertown residents and visitors may enjoy community parks and events.

Strategically located near Interstate 94, Watertown offers residents easy access to Milwaukee to the east and Madison to the west. Both cities are approximately one hour’s drive from Watertown. Milwaukee is home to such attractions as the Pettit National Ice Center (an Olympic training facility with a public ice rink), the Marcus Center for Performing Arts, Milwaukee Brewers baseball, the Fiserv Forum, and the Milwaukee County Zoo. Madison, the Wisconsin state capitol, offers the Olbrich Botanical Gardens, the University of Wisconsin campus, State Street (a pedestrian district near the university featuring shopping and eateries), and performing arts venues. Both Madisonand Milwaukee have airports, and nearby Chicago includes two major airports, O’Hare International and Midway International.
