Canal Day at Historic Waterloo Village

Saturday, October 14, 2017 -
10:00am to 4:00pm

The Canal Society of New Jersey offers a wide range of programming at Waterloo Village this year including the new Highlands Canal Boat Exhibit featuring the recently discovered remains of what may be the last Morris Canal Boat. Some of the historic buildings will be open, historic trades & crafts will be demonstrated, and there will be narrated canal boat rides running continuously from late morning until 3:30 in the afternoon. (Note that because Waterloo operates like a real 19th century village, our canal boat ride and water-powered gristmill may not be running at times of low water.)

Additional acitvities on October 14:
Live music: the Skylands Dulcimer String Band will present its own unique blend of  traditional, Celtic, old time, classical and modern music.
Store keeper and village historian, Rick Giles, will give visitors an idea of what shopping was like in the 1860.
Miller Steve Lauf  will be grinding grain and demonstrating the operation of a real water-powered gristmill.

After this, Waterloo Village will be open to the public for just one more Heritage Day, on Saturday, October 28.
