About The Historic Watson Building

The Watson Building was built in 1927 by Norman Baker, Owner-Manger of Baker Furniture. The Watson family took over the location during the 1940s and the building was home to Watson Furniture until soon after Lubbock’s 1970 tornado. The current owners purchased the property in 1992 and the restoration and renovation of this Lubbock landmark has been an ongoing project for the past 25 years. Since 1992, The Watson Building has served as an elegant and historic venue for all types of events in downtown Lubbock.
