Watford has an agricultural and industrial history, as well as being a former crossing point - hence the 'ford' part of the name. Today the town is known as a centre for retail and also the arts, with several music and theatre venues.
Watford Museum is housed in the former Benskins Brewery Mansion, and tells the story of Watford past and present. The museum has displays of local history and industry, including Watford Football Club memorabilia and the Cassiobury Collection of fine art, both of which are featured in extensive online exhibitions here.
