History

The town was formed by the Vermont charter on November 8, 1780,[1] and was originally called Littleton, but the name was changed to Waterford in 1797.[5] The town may have been named after Waterford, Ireland, or for the ford that ran across the Connecticut River in that area.[1]

The town is bordered by Barnet to the west, St. Johnsbury to the northwest, Kirby to the north, and Concord, Vermont, to the east. The town of Littleton, New Hampshire, is to the south, across the Connecticut River.

The town is crossed by Interstate 93 and Interstate 91. The northern terminus of I-93, at I-91, is in the western corner of the town, just south of St. Johnsbury. Exit 1 on I-93 serves the northern part of Waterford. Vermont Route 18 is a two-lane highway that parallels I-93.
