"This house is situated on Price St. was built by, and now occupied by the venerable and respected and esteemed John J. Watson, in Germantown. Of it, he thus writes, 'if sufficiently curious - is the house of J.J.W. the annalist, being the first built house in Price Street, now occupied some twelve years. There was about the centre of an old apple orchard of the Revolution, where there was much fighting, and many were killed and wounded.' Mr. Watson will be eighty years old in June 1859."
