Waterloo Farm Museum and Dewey School Museum

Waterloo Farm Museum and Dewey School Museum

The Waterloo Area Historical Society operates two locations—the Waterloo Farm Museum and the Dewey School Museum. Far removed from the hum of neighboring towns, our quiet, rural environs provide the first clue that visitors have truly begun their journey back in time to the 19th century. The Waterloo Farm Museum is a complex of farm buildings including: the 150-year-old Farmhouse; a restored wooden Perkins windmill; a Log House with stone fireplace; a Workshop with blacksmith's forge, a Bake House with working brick oven; the Granary, which now serves as a Gift Shop; the Icehouse; the Milk Cellar or Springhouse; and the Realy Barn. The one-room Dewey School Museum, located three miles north of the Farm, was built in the mid-1800s and held classes until 1956. The Dewey School Museum welcomes school tours from near and far to experience 19th Century rural schooling, and is open for tours during special events. Admission to the Dewey School is by donation. The Farm Museum is open Fri-Sun, 1pm-5pm, Memorial Day through Labor Day. Admission is $3.00/adults, $2.50/seniors , $1.00/youth ages 5-17. There is no admission fee for members of the Waterloo Area Historical Society. Please phone ahead to confirm hours or to arrange a group tour. Our mission is to foster an understanding and appreciation in children and adults of the pioneer farmers of Michigan, their family life and their children's schooling.
