In April 1885, several portions of subdivided land in an area known as Waterford North and South were advertised for auction by John Cameron. A map advertising the land shows the location of the subdivsions in proximity to the Upper Logan Railway and Tweed Railway lines and the Logan River. The land was owned by Henry Jordan and a supplement advertising the auction states that there was a quarry and sawmill on the land as well as two lagoons supplying fresh and pure water.
