In Waterdown, the downtown core is where almost every shop and store is located. If you want to do anything from buy groceries to take a pottery class, you do so downtown.

Spanish Florida was “an unanticipated discovery,” which was the first major European land in the New World. It was also the first attempted settlement in North America during the European Age of Discovery. From the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries, the Spanish Florida, also known as La Florida, was a colonial military outpost for the Spanish Empire. La Florida was maintained for the protection of the Spanish treasure fleets during their return from Havana, Cuba to Spain. The success or failure of the Spanish settlements was in the hands of the native populations that needed food, protection, and labor.
