Waterloo was founded by Elias Kelsey and John Logan in 1883 after two failed attempts at incorporation. In 1870, the Union Pacific Railroad designated a stop at the location.[5] The name possibly commemorates the Battle of Waterloo or Kelsey’s birthplace Waterloo, New York.[6]

The town was temporarily abandoned following The Great Flood of 1881.
