Historic Waterford, VA

Yesterday, we shared an impromptu Meetup with Loudoun Photo Club in Loudoun County Virginia. Ken M., the photo club’s field trip coordinator invited the RRPT Meetup group to join in on this wonderful opportunity to tour the historic Waterford Village. We started out early with a walk-about town, followed by private tour with Margaret Good from the Waterford Foundation to a number of the historic sites!

Waterford was settled in 1733 by Amos Janney, a Quaker from Pennsylvania. In the late 1930’s decedents of several of the original Waterford families set about restoring the buildings in town, and in 1943, the Waterford Foundation was formed. With the help of residents, the Waterford Foundation works to preserve this beautiful village for future generations. Here are some images from yesterday’s adventure.
