Waterford is a small town not far from the city of Erie. It is far enough removed, however, to retain simpler pleasures such as: a local library, historical aesthetics, Picnicana park, and homegrown restaurants.

The town of Waterford is very unique. You’d miss it on your way from Corry to Erie if you blinked. We have one light, a roundabout and the high school, But somehow this little town means so much more than that. We come together to support the school, the community, and everyone in between. Waterford Days is in July. There’s tons of booths lining the park, a World War 2 reenactment group, and a celebratory parade. Next, comes the Labor Day fair. Hundreds of people come to support each other and their hometown. There’s games, rides, truck pulls, tractor pulls, animals shows, and lots of food. Just these two events bring people back to this one light town to show their Waterford pride.
I love the small tight knit community. There are many small, family owned businesses with great food and service. I have been proud to have been born and raised in Waterford. The back-in parking has been an issue in the last year.
