Waterford’s great elm tree

August 17, 2013
The Marietta Times

No one knows when Waterford's great elm tree first started. It was long before there was ever a Waterford, which dates back to 1789. From the earliest settlement the tree was referred to as great or large, possibly being at least 50 years old at the time. Over the years, besides being a well-recognized landmark, it was a gathering place for church services, a boundary marker, a pole for hanging telephone lines, a place to hang advertisement signs, and a shade tree for downtown Waterford.
