Trinity Anglican, Waterford, Ontario

Trinity Anglican, Waterford, OntarioWaterford, Ontario is part of Norfolk County. The area surrounding the town is primarily agricultural land, with tomatoes, tobacco and corn among the chief crops.

Trinity Anglican, Waterford (right) was erected in 1909 and by 1917, was consecrated debt-free.

April 10, a fire destroyed Waterford United Church built in 1855. The blaze was caused by hot tar used by roofers fixing a leak in the addition to the church. The Trinity Anglican and Waterford United congregations held a joint service April 13. Arrangements are being made for the United Church to use the Anglican building until their church is rebuilt.
