Waterford Virginia. Photographs of an Exquisite Landmark Village

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gateway, Reston, Herndon, Ashburn, Sterling, Fairfax



Waterford VA. Loudoun County

I think we need some photographs of late spring in the Virginia countryside to help us through this gray February day.

Tucked away in Loudoun County, about an hour outside Washington DC is Waterford VA. It is unique. Not only in Virginia but in the US.

Only 4 blocks long and 1 block wide surrounded by rolling meadows, vineyards and treed hills, this village founded in 1733 is a National Historic Landmark District, one of only three in the country.

Waterford is just beautiful. Let's take a look:

 Here is more from Waterford's website:

Waterford VA. Loudoun County

Why Waterford was Designated a National Historic Landmark District?

Today, visitors to Waterford, Virginia, experience many of the same views as residents in the 19th century. Waterford preserves the ambiance and many of the structures that characterized it during its heyday as a flour milling town in the 19th century.






Waterford VA. Loudoun County




The village is a Loudoun County Historic and Cultural Conservation Site, on the Virginia Historic Landmarks Register, on the National Register of Historic Places, and in 1970, the entire village, with the farmland surrounding it, was designated a National Historic Landmark District, one of only three such landmarks in the entire United States.

Steve, Pretty cool to see a place retain its sense of history!  I assume it comes with comprehensive restrictions on what can be built and what can be changed?

Thank you Sarah and Les, I love that place!

BLIZ, indeed it does. All the residents want it that way. You do not move there unless that is the lifestyle you want.
