Protecting Wimberley's Historic Resources
The settlement that would eventually become know as Wimberley started as a trading post near Cypress Creek in 1848. The settlement's long history is apparent in the numerous historic buildings and structures located throughout the City. In an effort to preserve these unique pieces of history, the City has contracted with Post Oak Preservation Solutions LLC to complete a historic resources survey and report for the downtown core and adjacent areas of the city. This initiative is part of a larger preservation project that includes ordinances to establish a local historic district, design guidelines, and a National Register of Historic Places historic district nomination.
Historic Resources Survey
Post Oak Preservation Solutions will be conducting a survey of downtown Wimberley on June 13-14, 2022. They will be wearing brightly colored vests and taking pictures of buildings from FM 3237 to Brookshire Brothers on Ranch Road 12. The purpose of this survey is to develop a report and historic district map that identifies contributing and non-contributing resources for a National Register of Historic Places district nomination.

Post Oak Preservation Solutions will host public meetings and will conduct interviews with stakeholders, property owners, and City Council to further document historic resources within the City.

A fully illustrated document that details the design guidelines representing the character of the City will be created to guide property owners on improvements, alterations, and infill within the historic district. It will be designed as an easy to use manual and maintenance guide. These guidelines will be used as an educational tool to promote the history of Wimberley through history, architecture, and culture.
