• Waterloo Village Combines History, Value & Newly Renovated Meeting Space

     
    FROM THE Fall 2015 ISSUE
     

It’s no secret that events held in a special setting are more likely to be memorable. Waterloo Village provides event planners with extraordinary scenery—and more; the history of Waterloo Village dates back to Colonial times. Located on the Musconetcong River in Allamuchy Mountain State Park, this 18th-century town boasts a working mill, general store, blacksmith shop, an active church and numerous historic houses. Attendees are able to enjoy the town’s gazebo, a newly renovated meeting space that can accommodate 250 guests (200 with dancing), an outdoor stone fireplace and woodburning brick pizza oven. Jeffrey A. Miller Catering (JAM) offers exclusive catering to events held in Waterloo Village and can provide a completely customized menu and experience (including all-organic, vegan, vegetarian or conventional menus). JAM also grows all-organic herbs and vegetables on-site, and has a fruit orchard, as well. “The site is simply perfect as an events venue,” says Robyn Bell, JAM site manager. “Not only is it in a beautiful natural setting, but it also has a very rich history and so much personality.”

October is the month of fall color viewing, pumpkin picking, and pizza. Yes, October is National Pizza Month, and if you’re looking to commemorate the occasion, head to New Jersey.

Others may disagree—let’s make that, others will certainly disagree—but last year Food & Wine Magazine named New Jersey the best pizza state in America, followed by Connecticut and New York in the No. 2 and No. 3 spots, respectively. Pennsylvania landed in seventh place and Massachusetts nabbed 10th place.
