"The structure is in the Grecian style of architecture, having many Roman features adapted to modern requirements. It is massive and dignified, and characteristic of the man in whose memory it is built, and whose generosity can never be forgotten by the citizens of Watertown. The work has been developed under the watchful care of Mr. A. F. Lansing, who added to professional enthusiasm the interest of a private citizen. Mr. Lansing is a resident of Watertown, one whose family has been identified with the development of the city, to which development this generous donation of Mrs. Taylor contributes the most important civic example."
