The Village of Waterford, located along the Fox River in western Racine County, historically served as the hub of commerce for the surrounding community. The Village, which supports a mix of industrial, manufacturing, retail, and service industries, continues to benefit from its central location.

Incorporated in 1906, the Village covers over two square miles and has a population of 5,400+ people. It is a community rich in small-town charm with large city opportunities. Located just 30 minutes from Racine, Kenosha and Milwaukee, and one hour from Chicago and Madison, Waterford citizens enjoy the best that both small town and big city has to offer.
