Homesteading in Lane County

Waterloo

Founded in 1879 by Bernard McCormick, but it lasted only a few years. The McCormicks left in May 1881 to go back to Waterloo, Iowa, and even though a valiant effort was made by Captain Hey to keep the town going, it was abandoned in the late 1880's.

The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
