Waller County was created in April 1873. Its county seat is Hempstead. The county was named for Virginia native Edwin Waller, the first mayor of Austin and signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence. The first brick two story courthouse and jail was built in Hempstead. It burned in 1892 and was replaced by another brick courthouse in 1894. The City of Hempstead was unincorporated in 1899. 286 citizens voted to abolish, against 68 who voted to remain an incorporated city. The city of Hempstead was re-incorporated in 1935 after unsuccessful tries in 1928, 1930, and 1933.
