For more than 200 years the Erb-Kumpf House has proudly watched Waterloo transform from a Township, to a Village, to a Town and finally to a thriving City that is booming economically. Abraham Erb selected this location to build his home and establish the Township. It was the premier building location in 1812 and nothing has changed. For multiple generations, the property remained in the Erb and Kumpf families – each adding to the unique architectural style which includes Georgian six-over-six windows, as well as a Regency façade with two wings, Treillage, a Gothic bargeboard, and Doric columns. Painters, including Peter Etril Snyder, have captured this building on their canvases.
