Village of Waterman

Official Website for the Village of Waterman

Welcome to Waterman!

oldpicwatermanIn this original prairie town the first settlers lived in abandoned teepees before their homes were built Pottawatomie Indians lived southwest of Waterman when the first settlers arrived in 1835.

Surveyed and plotted in March of 1872, the town was named in honor of Daniel Waterman, General Solicitor of the Chicago and Iowa Railroad which reached Waterman in December of 1870.

Through the years, Waterman has developed many family traditions and welcomes all to share in its historic claims and family atmosphere.
