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

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 would reopen to full function.

My wife and I decided to visit Waterloo since we haven't been there in years. It was a gorgeous blue sky day. We had a wonderful time just walking through the area. Nothing was open since it is still closed until May 1. We will definitely be back to see inside of some of the houses. It is nice to see that they are slowly being restored, hopefully this continues. I think it would be great for kids too. There is much to learn about the canal and the town. I attached some pictures. We were very happy we explored Waterloo and will definitely be back when it opens for a tour on a Saturday.

We came on a Sunday and there were only a few sites opened. We visited the canal museum and Tim did an excellent job with explaining the history of the canal. We then went on the old indian village which was the highlight for us. From what I understand, they are opened till late October and then they are closed for the season. There are some events scheduled for Oct 28 and all the sites except for the old indian village will be opened. So if you are planning to make a trip, head down on Oct 28 before they close for the season! And btw, parking is $5, cash only (but entrance to the sites are free).

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 place but if it's closed, there's not much to offer.
