Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 8,000. In the Reg. Mun. of Hamilton-Wentworth on Grindstone Cr. and Hwy 5,8 km N of Hamilton.
  • Alexander McDonnell was the first to own land at the site, having been given a land grant in 1796.
  • When he failed to develop his holding, the land was granted in 1805 to Alexander Brown, a former officer of the North West Company.
  • Brown built the first mill at Great Falls on Grindstone Cr., and his sons later constructed Brown's Wharf on nearby L. Ontario. The post office was established in 1840.
  • Mill builder Henry Van Wagner is said to have named the community Waterdown because of the waters of Grindstone Cr. which rush down from the Niagara Escarpment at Great Falls.
