The Jefferson County Historical Society was founded in Watertown in 1886. Beaman Brockway was its first president. The organization first met at the YMCA, later finding a "home" at the Flower Memorial Library, where they displayed their collections. In 1922, they were given the historic Paddock Mansion, to be used as a museum for the community.

The mission of the Jefferson County Historical Society is to preserve a documentary record of the county and its people; to engage audiences in a dialog about our rich heritage, what it means to us today, and what it should mean for our future.
