A return to the past.
An enchanting village from another time.
Located on the Musconetcong River within the heart of New Jersey’s Allamuchy Mountain State Park, this beautifully restored 19th-Century canal town is a charming backdrop for any special event.
Featuring a working mill, a general store, blacksmith shop, active church, and several beautiful historic houses, Waterloo Village is a treasured time capsule surrounded by an air of tranquil beauty. With its rich history, Waterloo Village is the perfect setting for weddings, company retreats and local festivals. Boasting two spectacular indoor event spaces—the newly-renovated meeting house and the rustic pavilion—in addition to its spacious outdoor compound, Waterloo has the resources and ambiance to make your special occasion a memorable success.
Safeguarding one of New Jersey’s historic treasures.
As a remarkably well-preserved example of a 19th-Century canal town and the site of a 400-year-old Lenape Indian village, Waterloo Village is an incredibly valuable piece of New Jersey history. Currently stewarded by the Department of Environmental Protection’s Division of Parks and Forestry, Waterloo is open to the public as part of Allamuchy Mountain State Park and home to many events and educational programs to teach and inform visitors about the past. When you choose Waterloo Village as the setting for your event, a portion of proceeds will go towards the preservation and restoration of the site’s 26 historic buildings and grounds.
