Waterloo Village Photography Hot Spot Location
Waterloo Village – This is an excellent photography location! Waterloo Village is a restored 19th-century canal town in Byram Twp., Sussex County (west of Stanhope) in northwestern New Jersey. It’s old buildings, lake and watermill make for some pretty dynamic photography. There are about 20 buildings here to photograph.
In terms of what to photograph, there are several great scenes: the village main street, the waterwheel mill, the general store, a doctor’s office (the door was open on one visit), a schoolhouse with two kids home on break running around outside, the pottery shop and small kiln building where they sell their goods, stables and wagons. Water-lilies fill in much of the street down by the lakefront. During our last trip, two young boys played basketball on the court out front; at other visits, I have seen people fishing off a bridge just outside the grounds, children playing in a play area near the entrance and not much activity. Human activity, that is.
