New Waverly is a town of approximately 1,000 located 17 miles north of Conroe and 55 miles north of Houston on I-45 in Walker County. From 1835 to the 1850s, what is now known as Old Waverly was settled by people from Alabama. The community was named after the Waverly novels by Sir Walter Scott, which at the time were very popular. In 1870 the Houston & Great Northern Railroad Company wanted to run a railroad line through Waverly. The residents refused, so the railroad laid its track 10 miles west and allocated land for a town to be called Waverly Station. Many residents of Old Waverly moved to the new community, which soon became known as New Waverly. From 1870 to 1902 many Polish immigrants came to assist landowners. The economy was largely based on cotton, then later lumber. In 1952 the community incorporated as New Waverly. By 1990 the largest employer was the lumber company Louisiana-Pacific.
