Beautiful, peaceful and historic. Make no mistake, the homes need serious restoration. It's a wonderful place for a walk along the canal.

We enjoyed our visit. We came here during the winter and spring. Great place to take the kids or go for a quiet walk. There are many events held all year. They have a banquet to host birthdays and weddings.

I stopped in about an hour before sunset and really enjoyed walking around this historic village. I learned a few things from reading the signs and enjoyed watching the variety of birds on the ponds

Thoroughly enjoyed Waterloo Village. Authentic, informative, well-presented. The grounds, homesites and merchant sites provided excellent insight.
