As visitors to the town can see, the cemetery where Waterloo’s pioneers now rest is located at the centre of town. We owe this unusual location indirectly to A.B. Foster, important land owner and railway magnate. In the early 19th century, when the cemetery was first established, it was in the countryside and far from the population of Waterloo. It was only after 1860 that this part of the village was developed, the churches built, houses constructed and the population surrounded the cemetery. And once more, it was A.B. Foster who provided the initiative for this development.
To continue the tour: Walk up rue Shaw alongside the cemetery to rue Foster, where you’ll find Dr. Jameson's house on the corner. Please note the attached garage (formerly the stables), which is remarkably well preserved.
