History

The town was incorporated in 1832[2] on the banks of the Tennessee River. The name most likely commemorates the Battle of Waterloo.[7] According to the 1910 U.S. Census, Waterloo was reincorporated in 1903.[8]

In the 1930s, the town was moved to its current location when the Tennessee Valley Authority completed the Pickwick Landing Dam, which impounds Pickwick Lake.[2] Waterloo has lost a large area of land to floods and later the construction of Pickwick Landing Dam.

In 1880, when it first appeared on the U.S. Census, and again from 1910-1940, it was the second largest community in Lauderdale County after Florence, reaching its zenith of 524 residents in 1940. It has since lost two-thirds of its population and since 1980, and ranks 8th and smallest of Lauderdale County's incorporated communities with 203 residents.[9]

Geography

Waterloo is located along the north shore of Pickwick Lake, a reservoir along the Tennessee River created by Pickwick Landing Dam approximately 20 miles (32 km) downstream. Second Creek, which flows from the north, empties into Pickwick Lake at Waterloo, creating a small inlet. The point at which the states of Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee, meet is located several miles northwest of Waterloo.[10] County Road 14 connects Waterloo with Florence to the east.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 0.8 square miles (2.1 km2), of which 0.8 square miles (2.1 km2) is land and 0.1 square miles (0.26 km2) (6.17%) is water.
