Waterloo Village is a charming little village that's open for special events. In October they offered Trick or Treating through the village. We have done this event before, it was enjoyable. This year the weather was perfect, so it was quite crowded. I wish they...More

These days, Waterloo Village is only open for special events. The historical society that used to run the programs at Waterloo fell on hard times and inside corruption. Thus, it no longer offers programs on weekends or for school trips. Waterloo is a pretty awesome...More

Waterloo Village is a nice place for a walk along the canal. Beautiful scenery, nice paths, and historic buildings. Seems like a school bus destination, so go early morning or late afternoon or evening for a quieter visit.

Loved it - relaxing day but they need more signs indicating what everything is. Update the few signs that exist as they are hard to read. Hope to return when they put more information into place.

We spotted the brown signs on the road for 'Waterloo Village' and made the short drive off the main roads. Very interesting side trip and beautiful natural spot. There are informational signs posted throughout the village to learn about historical significance. Worthwhile hour diversion!
