Welcome to Waterford

 
For more information, go to Visit Loudoun.
 
Founded by Quakers on the banks of Catoctin Creek in 1733, this exquisite village comprising of dozens of colonial and red brick Federal homes looks as if it’s been preserved in aspic for 200 years. Waterford, a National Historic Landmark, is celebrated for its annual fair, the wineries on surrounding hills, the Old School that hosts frequent talks and concerts and the one room, Second Street School, now part of the Waterford Foundation’s Living History Program for grade school visitors.
