The Crossroads of Northeast Indiana
Waterloo is at the “crossroads” of Northeastern Indiana linking several major transportation routes including an Amtrak passenger train stop, freight lines, Interstate I-69, U.S. 6, and IN 427. Soon, a visionary trail will pass through town too.
Waterloo is only 20 minutes from the DeKalb County Airport and 40 minutes from Fort Wayne International Airport. Five miles to the south, the City of Auburn provides entertainment and essential goods; a little further south, Fort Wayne is the regional urban center with arts, culture, sports, and activities for the whole family. Just 20 miles to the north of Waterloo, the “lake country” of Steuben County offers many year-round recreational opportunities.
The Waterloo Grant Township Public Library is outstanding. It was built with funds from the Carnegie Foundation in the early part of the 20th Century and expanded again just recently. Our library provides outreach services, after school or summer programs, computer/Internet access and partners with local schools and other organizations.
The Town is part of an excellent education system featuring Waterloo Elementary, home of the Waterloo Discover Academy — a “hands-on” Project Based Learning (PBL) environment that is partnered with the New Tech Network. The nearby junior and senior high schools are innovative and also strive to create a positive culture, continuous improvement and social responsibility.
Waterloo offers the advantages of a small town, such as affordable housing and quiet atmosphere, but is close to major shopping facilities, recreational activities, and other conveniences of modern life.
