H i s t o r y o f Wat e r l o o Charles Carroll, an Irishman, came upon the scene, and to the astonishment of the Peterstown men and the Bellfontainers, ignored the rivalry and built his house on one side of the creek, his barn on the other and said, “It won’t be Bellfontaine, and it won’t be Peterstown, but begorra, I’ll give ye’s both your Waterloo.” The town experienced a marked population increase in the 1840s, and that is when the German population got its impetus. Many of the city’s buildings and its citizens today still reflect the heritage left by those German settlers. Waterloo received its charter as a town on Feb. 12, 1849, and the charter was amended in 1857 and 1859. It was chartered as a city on Aug. 29, 1888. Waterloo became the Monroe County seat in 1825. On Dec. 1, 1978, its historic district was recognized and placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Source: www.waterloo.il.us

Waterloo’s history dates back to the 1780s, when settlers formed the first permanent American settlement in the entire Northwest Territory – Bellfontaine, named for the beautiful spring that served as stopping place for the French traveling between the two French settlements of Cahokia and Kaskaskia. The area grew to such an extent that by 1800, the population of Bellfontaine had reached 286. In 1816, a man named Emery Peters Rogers arrived in the area and, four years later, opened the first permanent store, mill and quarry. The neighborhood around his store soon came to be known by his name, Peterstown. As the years passed, the town was divided into two parts – Bellfontaine at the south and Peterstown at the north. The two communities were divided by a creek, and there was said to have been intense rivalry between them. Legend has it that in 1818, a man named

S i s t e r C i t i e s o f P o r ta l o o The Sister Cities of Porta Loo, Waterloo, Illinois, and Partnerschaftsverein of Porta Westfalica, Germany, began their relationship on Oct. 2, 1980, when the mayor of the City of Waterloo announced the city would form a partnership with Porta Westfalica, West Germany. The announcement was the culmination of months of active promotion and planning by Waterloo’s Vera Kohlmeier and Porta Westfalica’s Helmut Macke. From the very beginning, officials and citizens of both cities have visited their counterparts abroad, enjoying home visits. Every two years, an official visit takes place between the two cities. Since 1984, alternating large group visits between Waterloo and Porta Westfalica have occurred every two years with many other small group, friend and family visits in between. The current membership of The Sister Cities of Porta Loo is 112 members, as of February 2017. The organization is governed by an elected nine-member board of directors, with

one non-voting representative from the City of Waterloo’s city council, and one non-voting representative from Waterloo High School’s German club. Board meetings are held at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month at Waterloo City Hall. Semi-annual general membership meetings are held on the second Tuesday of April and October. The main emphasis of our friendship is the summer youth exchange. Each summer since 1984, students from Porta Westfalica and Waterloo have spent four to six weeks in each other’s city, hosted in the homes of local families, as part of an ongoing student exchange program. This program has resulted in countless friendships, frequent return visits on both sides, many siblings of both Waterloo and Porta families applying for the exchange visits and career and life decisions made by these students due to the travel opportunities afforded to them by the exchange The main funding of The Sister Cities of Por-

ta Loo for 2016-2017 came from the organization’s potato pancake stand at community area festivals. German potato pancakes are made from a recipe received from Porta Westfalica, using 10 pounds of potatoes for each batch. Three times a year, The Sister Cities of Porta Loo members man their stand at the Maeystown, Illinois, “Fruehlingsfest” the first Sunday in May, at the Waterloo “Portafest” on the third Tuesday in June and at the Maeystown, Illinois, “Oktoberfest” on the second Sunday in October. They also host a Trivia Night in September. The Sister City partnership between Waterloo’s The Sister Cities of Porta Loo and Porta Westfalica’s Partnerschaftsverein has existed since 1980, growing and improving every year, but always keeping the intention of Vera Kohlmeier, Helmut Macke, and the Sister Cities idea in mind – “understanding through people-to-people contacts” and friendship among nations. – Written by Debbie Cummins, Sister Cities member

Senior Care & Liv ing Every phase of life is a time for change, including aging. Planning ahead for future housing needs is a vital part of ensuring that you thrive as you age. Every senior needs to feel empowered to make choices for his/her home environment as needs or desire for a lifestyle change occurs. It is important to assess your current and future needs to allow you to have more choices and control when exploring your options. Getting familiar with the different types of senior housing within Waterloo prior to the need to make a decision will give you a better opportunity to make the choice that is right for you. Within Waterloo, there are many senior housing choices that include, independent, supportive, assisted, memory care, skilled nursing care and short term rehabilitation. Choosing a senior housing option can be an emotional process, but does not have to overwhelm you. Seniors are looking for an independent lifestyle with the services they need when they choose to leave home. Because senior living options can often be referred to by

different categories, it is important for you and your family to explore each of the living options in Waterloo to have the best plan in place when it becomes a need in your life. Having a list of questions ready to ask when you arrive at each facility will help you pick the best option for your current and future needs. It is also important to check on waiting lists and whether it is a good time to get on a waiting list even though you are not ready to move. Our small community is very fortunate to have many valuable choices for senior care needs. Don’t lose out on the opportunity to live in the community you love because you did not plan. Start the discussion with your family and friends to allow you the time to seek out the best fit for you. Explore senior living options in Waterloo:  
