Wimberley offers a charming small town ambience with friendly restaurants and shops.  The pretty community is a haven for artists and retirees, but Wimberley is never too relaxing.  It provokes an enticing creative spirit that comes alive at community activities and events.  People come out for everything from Socials to the Wimberley Market Day on the first Saturdays each month, the Jazz Fest, Butterfly Days, Rodeos, and Shakespeare under the Stars and to cheery on the students at athletic events.

The community began as a trading post.  Settlement began in 1848.  San Jacinto veteran William Carvin Winters started a gristmill that was purchased in 1874 by Pleasant Wimberley.  Wimberley’s Mill served for 50 years for lumber, shingles, grist, flour, molasses, and a cotton gin.  Following this era, Wimberley became a healing resort.

The acclaimed Wimberley Independent School District serves students in the area.  Other schools include St. Stephen’s Episcopal School and Katherine Anne Porter School, a public charter school.
