- The original grist mill was built in 1816 on Beaver Creek (now known as Laurel Creek) by Abraham Erb, Waterloo's first settler. The grist mill was an important economical and social centre for the region. It helped encourage the settlement that eventually grew into the Waterloo we know today. The original grist mill was demolished in 1927, but a replica was built in 1998 on Silver Lake.
