Waterford Heritage & Agricultural Museum

The pickle factory exhibit inside the Waterford Museum.

Waterford Heritage & Agricultural Museum (WHAM) is located in one of Waterford’s best known industrial landmarks “The Pickle Factory”.  The museum exhibits the rich social, industrial, and agricultural history of the area through the use of interactive and engaging exhibits.  Visitors can sort cucumbers for processing in the pickle factory or try their hand at milking our moo-seum cow, Bessie. 
For researchers, we offer an extensive archival collection which includes several genealogical databases, microfilmed Waterford Star newspaper records, cemetery records and hundreds of early photographic images. We also house all of the Norfolk County Land Records dating from 1851 to 1953.

WHAM is dedicated to providing engaging and interesting exhibits and events that promote and celebrate the heritage and community that is uniquely ours. Events include our annual Heritage Tractor Drive, children’s programming – PA Day Camps, Summer Camp, March Break Camp, adult workshops and lectures, theatrical presentations and family-based activities.  Exhibits change throughout the year so that there is always something new to experience at WHAM.
