The Buck was constructed in the early 1920's and housed many prominent local businesses during Watertown's rich history.

In 1993, Neighbors packaged a syndication and was the developer of a $1.2 million historic renovation of the Buck Building to provide 11 apartments for low income tenants and 3 street level commercial storefronts. Upper floor residents are afforded a beautiful view of the park in the center of Public Square.
