Waterloo Pioneers Memorial Tower

The Waterloo Pioneer Memorial Tower is an 18.9 metre high tower on the banks of the Grand River that pays tribute to the contributions of the hardworking Pennsylvania-German pioneers who settled the Waterloo Region between 1800 and 1803. Its shimmering Swiss-style copper roof, random-coursed fieldstone construction and Conestoga wagon weather vane can be seen for miles, paying tribute to the German heritage of the farming community that built it.
