Elkanah Watson House is a National Historic Landmark located in Port Kent, New York. It is a formal home overlooking Lake Champlain that was designed by Sheldon & Merritt and constructed under the supervision of Charles Watson to be the home of his father, Elkanah Watson, Revolutionary-era diplomat, founder of the county fair and early promoter of canals, who occupied it in May, 1828. It was later the home of another of Elkanah’s sons, Winslow C. Watson, a historian who completed Elkanah’s autobiography.
