Erb-Kumpf HouseLocated at 172 King Street South, the Erb-Kumpf House is the oldest house still standing in Waterloo .The oldest portion of this house was built in 1812 by Abraham Erb, the founder of Waterloo, later purchased by Christian Kumpf in 1869. Additions were completed around 1849 and 1855, and sometime after 1979. In 1979 it was designated a Heritage House.
The two-storey white-clapboard building shows a mixture of architectural styles resulting from many renovations. Additions included two wings as well as a second story balcony. One of the many unique characteristics are the “six over six” windows.
