Waterford was founded about 1733 by Amos Janney, a Pennsylvania Quaker . Other Quakers followed him there. Mills were built along Catoctin Creek. The village grew until it was the second largest town in Loudoun Co. (this was before the Civil War). Many buildings still in use in the village were built before 1840. Waterford has retained much of its pre-Civil War charm. In 1943, some village residents began the Waterford Homes Tour and Crafts Exhibit, an annual event that continues today and is held the first weekend in October. In1970, Waterford and 1,420 surrounding acres were designated a National Historic Landmark.
