Take the Kids: Waterloo Village

This blast from the past is the perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon.

From a working mill complex with gristmills and sawmills to a general store and blacksmith shop, the Waterloo Village in Stanhope is straight out of a storybook, complete with a host of characters and events to keep you coming back.

In February 2018, the Friends of Waterloo Village accepted a Historic Preservation Recognition Award for their work maintaining this historic village from the 1800s, which combines artifacts with present-day educational opportunities.

There are demonstrations from the historic society of typical 19th century activities such as pottery, blacksmithing and seamstressing, plus activities that keep the community involved. Even Santa Claus makes his annual pilgrimage to the Waterloo Village for their Christmas in July extravaganza.

Stop by the farmers market Sundays at 11 am through October 21 for fresh produce, artisan bread, delicious pastries and pies, jams and jellies, honey and maple syrup.

Registration required for some events. For more information, visit friendsofwaterloovillage.com or call 973-668-3457.
