Well into the 20th century most Americans lived and worked on farms or in small towns much like this one. Few of those places remain much as they were. Waterford, miraculously, is one that has.

Visit Waterford and walk with us through time for clues to Waterford's character and tenacity. It is a story of ordinary people who did extraordinary things.
