Your donation helps with the ongoing preservation of land and buildings — dating back to the village’s founding in 1733 — as well as educational programs such as the Second Street School program, where children study actual students who attended the one-room African-American school in 1880, the Waterford Craft School which teaches traditional made-by-hand skills and the Waterford Fair, which provides a venue for master artisans and showcases the history and beauty of Waterford.
