The Waterloo Farm Museum and Dewey School Museum needs your help!

Looking for a vivid glance into 19th century pioneer life? The Waterloo Farm Museum has just the thing. The museum features farm buildings nestled in the curve of a scenic rural road. Highlights include a farmhouse built in 1850s, a rare restored wooden Perkins windmill, a log house with stone fireplace, a woodworking and blacksmith’s workshop with working forge, the granary which now serves as a gift shop, and many other buildings that supported 1880s farm life. The Dewey School Museum, located three miles north of the Farm, is a one-room schoolhouse that was built in the mid-1800s and held classes until 1956.
