WIMBERLEY TEXAS
After Texas received statehood in 1845, many people were drawn to the area because of the many springs and its beauty. It was an empty trading post on Cypress Creek in 1848. Many of the earliest settlers had land grants and were veterans of the Battle of San Jacinto. Wimberley was known as Glendale. William Carvin Winters, also a Battle of San Jacinto veteran, came to the area with his family in the early 1850s. He built a saw mill in 1856, powered by Cypress Creek and later added a grist mill. The two mills served the community for miles around, and Glendale became Winters’ Mill. Winters died in 1864, and his mill complex was passed down to John Cude, his son-in-law who was married to his daughter Nancy. Cude rebuilt the mill which had been flood damaged, and the settlement became known as Cude’s Mill. In the 1870s, Pleasant Wimberley moved with his family to Cude’s Mill. Wimberley bought the mill from Cude in 1874 and the town became known as Wimberley’s Mill. In 1880, the name “Wimberleyville” was submitted by Alfred vom Stein (a postmaster from San Marcos) for a post office. The “ville” was removed and the town became Wimberley. The mills were passed down through the Wimberley family and sold to John Will Pyland, an in-law, in 1907. Hick Wimberley installed a 20 horsepower engine when, in 1912, the creek could no longer power the mill. The mill ceased operation in 1925.
