Founded in the mid 1800s by a small group of settlers, Waterloo still bears the names of these original pioneers in many of its oldest avenues. The name Waterloo was chosen by one of these original settlers after looking through a directory of United States post offices and choosing the name he liked most. The original Waterloo, of course, is in Belgium and was the site of the Battle of Waterloo, the decisive battle of the Napoleonic Wars and the battle that ended of the reign of Napoleon.
