Waterville was first settled ca. 1792 and known as "The Huddle." The village was incorporated in 1808. Hop Farming commenced in Waterville about 1820, and in 1860 an International Hop Exchange was established here. By 1875 the area was known as the "Hop Capital of the World" when methods were first developed to be able to stabilize hop prices by "holding over" product during abundant production years. Waterville Creek is a tributary of the Mohawk River.

Waterville is the birthplace of inventor George Eastman, founder of Eastman Kodak.
