The site of Waterdown has played an important role in establishing settlements going further back than its recorded history. The Neutral Indians used the gap cut through the escarpment by the river to follow a route to their hunting ground. The first land grant in the area was received in 1796, and over the next century the Village of Waterdown was established. Enjoy walking through modern Waterdown while appreciating what preceded it. In our growing village, connect our storied past with the present day.
