Waterford, Ontario

Waterford is a small town located about 11 kms (7 miles) north of the town of Simcoe. The area surrounding the village is primarily agricultural land, corn and tobacco among the chief crops but other natural health and organic crops are gaining in popularity, such as ginseng. This community has been known successively as Sayles' Mills, Sovereign's Mills, Lodersville, and finally as Waterford when a post-office was opened around 1826.

One of the attractions in Waterfold is the Spruce Row Museum (Waterford Heritage and Agricultural Museum) which exhibits the agricultural heritage of the area. Also Visitors can enjoy swimming, fishing, boating and picnicking in the Waterford Lakes.

Another popular attraction in Waterford is the "Waterford Deer Park" which is a favorite spot for children and families.

Every October the town of Waterford and surrounding community hosts a Pumpkin Festival with a fireworks display, parade and a spook house. Displaying a "pumpkin pyramid" of 1500 carved pumpkins is an annual tradition for this festival.
