My World Tuesday

Thank you Klaus, Sandy, Ivar, Wren, Fishing Guy and Louise for hosting My World. You can visit this wonderful meme by clicking on their icon below.

Waterford is a lovely little town a short drive away from where I live. It was originally settled by a man named Amos Janney in 1733, a Quaker from Bucks County, Pennsylvania. You can find out more at their homepage here. My photos were taken last winter.

  1. Denise: What a neat bit of history from your part of Virginia. What a neat old house you have shown. In 1733 my area was only woods and river.

  8. Small world! I was through here last July. My son lives in Leesburg.
    You live in a beautiful part of Virginia. It was pouring the rain down when we were there so we decided we would need to go back.
    Lovely photos! I love the 'feel' of them.

  17. I'm not sure my part of the world was even settled in 1733, though I suppose it might have been. Most of the permanent settlements in NC at that time were along the Atlantic coast, about 120-150 miles east of me (depending on which part of the coast you're going to).

    The cabin looks like it could sit there another 300 years thank you very much!

    Lovely part of the world you have there. Thanks for sharing it!

  22. So much history to see! Never heard of this particular Waterford, but it looks like a place worth visiting. My sis lives in Alexandria, VA and that looks like a day trip for us next time I visit her.
    Lovely photos.
