City & Culture
Wimberley started as a trading post for the folks working the surrounding land. It had the only wood mill for miles. In 1874 a man named Pleasant Wimberley took over the mill and it seems his namesake is a perfect description of the town. Since those days it has become a the destination spot for Texas weddings and family vacations. Nestled in the shade of cypress lined creeks, Wimberley is a picturesque location for a getaway. Over the years, it has become the home to many central Texas artists seeking the quiet life. Around that culture has grown a bustling artist community and many galleries have popped up in the center of town. Along side the beautiful galleries and scenery, the shopping district has created a name for itself with the excellent selection of new and vintage western wear. Wimberley square is home to the world renowned "Boot Whisperer" for those looking for the perfect pair of cowboy footwear. Come and shop for your favorite pearl snap shirt, a beautiful wall hanging or just relax by the creek, it's all good.
