Long Description:
This 4' x 10' working water wheel can be found in the lower lever of grist mill which is located in Waterloo Village in New Jersey.

This low-built 2.5 story stone mill was originally built by the National Biscuit Company Inc., at Waterloo just south of Stanhope, N.J. This early industrial pioneer village complex included an early iron forge, grist mill, settler's store, blacksmith forge, early farmsteads, church and various houses and businesses.

According to Wikipedia, "Waterloo Village is a restored 19th-century canal town in Byram Township, Sussex County (west of Stanhope) in northwestern New Jersey, United States. The community was approximately the half-way point in the roughly 102-mile (165 km) trip along the Morris Canal, which ran from Jersey City (across the Hudson River from Manhattan, New York) to Phillipsburg, New Jersey, (across the Delaware River from Easton, Pennsylvania). Waterloo possessed all the accommodations necessary to service the needs of a canal operation, including an inn, a general store, a church, a blacksmith shop (to service the mules on the canal), and a watermill. For canal workers, Waterloo's geographic location would have been conducive to being an overnight stopover point on the two-day trip between Phillipsburg and Jersey City.

It is currently an open-air museum in Allamuchy Mountain State Park. As part of the State Park, it is open to the public from sunrise to sunset. The village is listed on the National Register of Historic Places".
