Settlers date back to as early as 1763, but the town of Waterbury was officially founded in 1882 and has a population of just 5,000 today. Although a relatively small town, Waterbury boasts one-of-a-kind businesses and tourist attractions for all ages.
A Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory is located in Waterbury, providing several hundred jobs and a popular tourist attraction for those interested in seeing how their ice cream is made.
Cold Hollow Cider Mill is also a great place for families. The mill is the largest producer of cider in the state, and their popular cider doughnuts, mustards, jams, and maple syrup are also worth stopping for. Families can pick apples and watch cider being made each day at the Mill.
The Tiny Acorn is Waterbury's weekly Farmer's Market with offering raised meats, syrups, fresh produce, flowers, collectibles, and more. Free summer concerts complement the market in the evenings.
