Watkins & Eager would like to thank Mississippi artist, Wyatt Waters, for the use of his painting "Capitol Street." Since its founding in 1895, the offices of Watkins & Eager have always been in the heart of downtown Jackson, never more than a block from the firm's present location in the historic Emporium Building.
