History runs deep in the Texas Hill Country. Towns and cities formed from geographical features, proximity to resources and food, and common beliefs. As a result, settlers developed the tools and infrastructure needed to survive. In 1856, William Carvin Winters built ‘Winters’ Mill’, then sold the mill to the Cude family in 1864. In 1874, Pleasant Wimberley acquired the mill and the settlement took on the name ‘Wimberley Mill’.
