The Waterloo Library and Historical Society, built in 1880, was the first public library in the state to be built specifically as a library, museum and lecture hall and is the oldest library building in the state that has had continuous use. Attached to the library building is the Terwilliger Museum of local history, where a research area, with reference materials, is designated. Across the yard is the National Memorial Day Museum and it is here that the archival collections of the society is kept. The archival collection of the Waterloo Historical Society was a source of primary documentation for "Survey of Sites Related to the Underground Railroad, Abolitionism and African American Life."
