The Waller area encompasses the Waller Independent School District and covers over 320 square miles. Most visitors don't know, but the area includes the communities of Waller, Hockley, Fields Store, Rosehill, and Pine Island. This geographically diverse area extends into both Harris and Waller counties.
The City of Waller is located about 45 miles west of Houston just down US Hwy 290. About half of the town is in Harris County and the other in Waller County. Out here small town charm is still alive in both the area and it's people.
Next time you are on you way to Austin or Bryan / College Station, stop by and have lunch or take a tour of the area.

In August of 1983, Hurricane Alicia made landfall on the Texas Gulf Coast bringing with it: wind, rain and destruction. In the midst was a Houston Firefighter named Butch Edmonds that observed firsthand the destruction and rebuilding processes. Recognizing the need for quality, reliable insurance and knowing his Firefighter salary would need to be subsidized to support his growing family, he and his wife Mary set the foundation for Edmonds Insurance in place. Beginning with an office in their home in Waller, Texas they began offering affordable, competitive insurance options with reliable service and the business has been growing ever since.
Butch and Mary are still involved in the business but day to day operations are in the capable hands of their son Anthony Edmonds (himself a Captain in the Houston Fire Department) and his very knowledgeable staff that continue to provide quality, reliable, affordable insurance.
Edmonds Insurance Agency has grown into a stable business with locations in Waller, Hempstead, Brenham, Tomball and Montgomery and the staff at Edmonds still prides itself on providing multiple affordable options and coverages to protect their neighbors and communities often when other agencies can’t. With over 30 insurance providers, they are able to offer coverages for homeowner’s, life, health, flood, auto, commercial, farm and ranch, crop, mobile homes, antique vehicles and so much more.
If it’s important to you, then contact Edmonds Insurance Agency and they can provide the coverage you need to protect the investments you value most. Contact them at 800-372-9122 or www.edmondsins.com.
Waller Christian Academy
At WCA, our vision is Building tomorrow’s leaders through Christ-centered foundations and academic excellence.
Waller Christian Academy is a full time Christian school serving Pre-kindergarten (3 year old) through 9th grade. The typical school day is 8:00 am -3:00pm. Before school and after school care is provided (at an additional fee) for families that are in need of such care. WCA’s after-school program provides enrichment in the fields of academics, arts, health and other areas.
Small classroom settings are used to improve the potential of today’s youth, through developing their intellectual, personal, social, and emotional skills on a more one-on-one basis. WCA strives to provide a personalized, lifelong learning system that develops each individual’s potential to impact their opportunities. We truly believe we must transform the traditional educational models into the 21st Century. We stand by the practice that every person has inner potential that is unleashed by one’s own desire to do so.
WCA is excited to announce that Mr. Bo Keithley will be joining the WCA family as the new Head of School starting with the 2016-2017 school year. After serving the church for 30 years in pastoral positions, God called Bo to education where he spent 8 years in various teaching roles. Mr. Keithley, and his wife Nancy, have been residents of Waller County for several years. We are excited that now he can call WCA his home as well.
