Fresh Fact
It was the arrival of entrepreneur Ebenezer Culver Griffin in 1823 that marked the true beginning of the Village of Waterdown. It was Griffin that had his property surveyed into village lots in 1830.



In fact, a local story credits Ebenezer Griffin with giving Waterdown its name. A prohibitionist, Griffin did not approve of the vast quantities of alcohol being consumed during the Victorian Age, including the whiskey used to christened new mills. During the christening of one of Griffin's mills the carpenter called out for its name and someone in the crowd called out "Hey Ebenezer, throw that water down." The carpenter heard the name "Waterdown" and it was given to the mill and soon adopted by the emerging village.
