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.
