1942: The Beginning of Waterloo
April 19, 2012

Harrison Ford, Paul McCartney, Barbara Streisand and Martin Scorsese were born in 1942. It was a good year for future entertainers. Joe Biden, Michael Bloomberg, and Richard Daley also came into the world the same year and whether or not it was as good for future politicians is a matter for you to decide.

Franklin Roosevelt was our president and Winston Churchill was the British Prime Minister, but Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Joseph Stalin were also in power.

Amidst this world in conflict, a small garden center in Devon, Pennsylvania was begun by an Italian emigrant named James Paolini. He provided beautiful plants to a community in turmoil along with the rest of our country. Over the last seventy years Waterloo Gardens has grown significantly and has been recognized as an industry leader for many years in our tri-state area, and indeed throughout the country.

Waterloo Gardens has expanded to other locations, increased the products we offer, the size of our inventory and staff, and relationships in the community. Yet we are still a family-owned business seeking to offer our friends and neighbors a unique experience and outstanding products.

So please help us celebrate our 70th Anniversary this weekend. Take advantage of the many activities and opportunities available at our Exton and Devon stores. We look forward to seeing many old and new friends alike!
