Arch Month: Historic Waterford Foundation Walking Tour (CE)
April 11

Offered as part of Virginia Architecture Month.

Organized by the Historic Waterford Foundation, this in-person walking tour will focus on the history and architecture of the village of Waterford over time. Settled by Quakers in the 1730’s, Waterford was a farming community with wheat mills built along the creek. By the early 19th century, the town was a commercial center with structures that often served as both a dwelling and business. The town has an extraordinary collection of original 18th- and 19th-century buildings. The majority of existing houses were built before 1861. Due to the high degree of integrity, the village is designated as a National Historic Landmark District.

The tour is organized and conducted by the non-profit Waterford Foundation, which has played an important role in revitalizing Waterford and providing information and tours for the public. Tours will begin at the Waterford Old School at 40222 Fairfax Street, Waterford, VA 20197.

Open to the public.
