Waterloo Village

Waterloo Village is located on Waterloo Rd. in Stanhope, NJ 07874. Opening hours are 6:00 am- 6:00 pm. Being new to the area I was curious to take a visit to this abandoned village. My first trip to this 19th-century beauty was during a peaceful walk during the winter afternoon. I enjoyed looking at the homes and walking along the Morris Canal.

With the snow-covered trees, it looked like a winter wonderland. Waterloo Village was a small town that serviced the Morris Canal through the Hudson River to the Delaware River. Waterloo Village had a general store, an inn, a church, and a blacksmith shop. There are many events held here throughout the year including private events and even weddings.

There’s a walking trail throughout the village and it’s free to the public except when events are held. I couldn’t wait until the spring to come back and visit the grounds. It was just as beautiful with the trees and flowers in full bloom around the property. Check online for events that take place during the year. Take a step back in time and enjoy your visit. It

The photo above is during a summer walk in the village. Across from the canal is the cemetery. When I got home, I went through my photos and thought it was dust particles on the photo. I went through all the photos and this was the only one that captured this glowing orb. Some may say it’s sun glare on my camera. I believe I caught a ghost during my visit. What do you think?
