Village of Waterford

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. A National Historic Landmark, it’s celebrated for its annual English colonial-style fair, the cluster of wineries on surrounding hills, the newly built Old School that hosts frequent talks and concerts, and the one room Second Street schoolhouse, an African American school from 1886 now part of the Waterford Foundation’s Living History Program for grade school visitors. On Halloween the local elementary decorates village homes on a literary theme and the town turns into a fairy tale candy wonderland.
