Waterford:

Waterford was founded about 1733 by Amos Janney, a Pennsylvania Quaker. Soon after other Quakers followed him here. Mills were built along Catoctin Creek. The village continued to grow until it was the second largest town in Loudoun County before the Civil War.

This unique and thriving Quaker settlement is situated on Catoctin Creek in the northern part of Loudoun County, 6 miles south of Taylorstown, 7 miles northwest of Leesburg, 47 miles west from Washington and 159 miles north of Richmond. It was named after the town of Waterford in Ireland where some of its founders had formerly resided. The first house within the town limits was built by one Asa Moore and remains standing today. In common with the other towns and villages of the famous Loudoun Valley, Waterford is noted for its numerous and inexhaustible wells of the purest and best water, bracing air and low mortality rate. It has a little less than 400 inhabitants, many of whom are merchants and mechanics.  The town is preserved through the Waterford Foundation.
