Waterville Businesses


We are fortunate to have these local businesses and organizations that bring our community together. For your convenience, we have those business and organizations listed below.  THEY ARE READY TO MAKE YOU FEEL WELCOME. 

The Winchester is open Thur thru Sunday


Owned by Matt and Christie Rathbun.


The Winchester is locally famous for their delicious homemade pizzas.

The Waterville Store Bar & Grill building was originally Bernhart Johnson's Oil Station in 1932.  October of 2015 the Store was destroyed by fire.  Everyone in the Waterville area has felt the loss of this business. Today Matt and Christie have the new Winchester ready to serve and impress us with the facility.

Hammy's Hideout building was the former Waterville Savings Bank and later Hagen's Feed Store.  Eventually Neal and Shirley Palmer turned the building into a bar known as the Rainbow Inn.

Hammy's Hideout


When you visit Hammy's Hideout, expect to hear Jeff Hamm tell a hunting story or two. Jeff, an avid hunter and sportsman, is always ready to make sure you have a good time when you visit.

Open Door to the Soul


Founded in the late 1800s, Waterville Lutheran Church was a place of worship serving and supporting the Waterville community for 133 years. The impact of this church resonates within Waterville and its surrounding communities. The magic and allure of small communities and the church is that they offer refuge and protect the weary from what can sometimes be a very unforgiving world. Once here, the spirit is repaired and revitalized, able to meet and face life on its terms.


Therefore, Open Door to the Soul welcomes the opportunity to continue this tradition and perhaps breathe new life or offer a fresh perspective that will allow us to build upon Waterville Lutheran Church’s legacy and provide continual opportunities for community members and visitors to host events, programs and celebrations at this quaint landmark.


Phone: (563) 794-2014



Thanksgiving Day the White Famiy and Open Door to The Soul will again be hosting a community Thanksgiving Dinner.  Everyone is invited
