The Village Church
A vertical landscape scene of the lovely white United Methodist Church in historic Waterloo Village. The simple clean lines of the white church ares set off by a deep blue sky and the rich colors of autumn foliage. This beautiful little church, located in historic Waterloo Village in Stanhope NJ, has a rich history. Built to be the place of worship for the developing canal village of Waterloo, the cornerstone was laid in 1859, celebrated by a group of about 600 people. The church, grounds and graveyard have been meticulously maintained in their original format. This charming church has functioned for more than 150 years and still holds Sunday services.
