to Waterloo! Where friends become family! Whether you are a resident, a business friend, a visitor or just curious about our town we're glad you're here! While you are here you'll notice our small town hospitality.
Waterloo is a growing community that embraces the prospects of a bright future. We have a number of exciting projects that will make our community even better. Through more than one hundred years of growth, our town has kept its charm and beauty. Waterloo became the Monroe County seat in 1825.
A lot has happened since the 1800's. Our population recently passed 10,000 with new businesses and homes popping up everywhere. Picturesque landscapes remain throughout the community. Many roads provide historic and contemporary views of farming and rural living as well. There are also a number of very tangible assets, such as good schools and neighborhoods, a healthy downtown and plenty of green space in between.
If you "pine" for a slower, simpler lifestyle yet still want access to most metropolitan amenities, you can have both in Waterloo, just 20 minutes from downtown St. Louis, Missouri. At least come visit us!! We always love to brag on our community! We think it's GREAT!!
Whether you are a private citizen in the Waterloo area or represent a business, civic organization or school, you have likely benefited from the efforts of the Waterloo Area Chamber of Commerce. since its fouding in 1929, the Chamber has become a heavily-relied-upon resource within the community, focused on providing business development, maintaining the outstanding quality of life citizens enjoy, promoting tourism and managing other helpful community projects and services. In addition, the Chamber serves as a general point of community information and its staff answers literally thousands of inquiries annually.
The Chamber office is staffed by a full-time executive director. The organization is governed by a nine member board of directors, whose mix represents the membership as a whole. Also representing the organization are Chamber "Ambassadors", who are active members that volunteer their time to welcome new and potential members to Chamber events and programs.
