Where does your donation go?

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 role-play as actual students in the 1880 African-American school, 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.
