Waterloo Library & Historical Society
The historic Waterloo Library was built in 1883 in the Queen Anne style. Founded in 1875, it is one of the oldest libraries continuously operating in the state. It features a 140-seat venue called Fatzinger Hall that hosts lectures, musical and theatrical performances, readings, and other events. A modern addition, Terwilliger Museum, was built in 1960 and features exhibits about Waterloo's history. Numerous items and artifacts are on display including vehicles, Native American artifacts, maps, photographs, currency, antique guns, and dolls. The library was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.
