Waterford was formed from Half Moon in 1816. It lies at the junction of the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers, in the south-east corner of the county. The town was formerly known as Half Moon Point, and the semi-circular tract between the Hudson and the Mohawk was called Half Moon. Its present name originated from the fact that at the Village of Waterford, a ford crossed to Haver Island.
The town was first settled by the Dutch at a very early day. John Cramer was the first town supervisor.
