Historical Archives

From the Waterford Archives & Local History Collection

Over the years, the Waterford Foundation has gathered all types of materials—from books to buggies—that explore the architecture, archaeology, agricultural, geology, economy, education, and culture of the people who lived here. These items add to our knowledge of Waterford as an important agricultural and manufacturing center. The Waterford Foundation is now in the process of establishing a museum and library that will make this collection available to you. Plans also call for genealogical archives of Waterford families and their descendants.

Items from the collection are displayed on a rotating basis at the Corner Store (40183 Main Street in the center of the village). Store hours currently are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Also available at the store are books, pamphlets, and brochures on aspects of Waterford’s history, plus a walking tour booklet detailing village buildings and their histories.
