The town of Waverly, Texas, was located eight miles east of present New Waverly. Its demise was the result of the railroad which was rejected by the citizens in the best interest of their town. When the lines was laid in 1872, the railroad laid out and recorded the plat of a new town which they named “Waverly” –sometimes called Waverly Station. To distinguish the two Waverlys, the new town was referred to a “new” Waverly which became its permanent name.
In 1866 a group of Waverly planters formed the Waverly Emigration Society to import foreign laborers to work on their farms. Approximately 40 families arrived the following summer and soon afterwards they were “found” by Rev. Felix Orzechowski, known as the “peregrinating priest” for past problems in the San Antonio area. He traveled primary by foot, eating bacon and corn bread or less, and the ground was often his bed. In 1869 the Parish of St. Joseph was organized under Father Orzechowski’s leadership. Mass was celebrated on various farms, as no church was built during his time in this area.
The third and present church was built in 1905. Soon after his arrival in 1902, Father Bily wanted the congregation to build a new church as a “thanksgiving by the people of St. Joseph’s for having been brought together into a successful community, for having been given a parish, and for having been allowed to live as a free people in a great country.” And they did. They bought the remainder of the block and one lot across the street. Architect L. S. Green planned the Gothic structure which cost $13,000 excluding the altars and stained glass windows. Three years after laying the cornerstone, the third and present St. Joseph Catholic Church was judged the finest and best in the South upon its dedication on December 16, 1906 (Huntsville Post-Item, Dec. 14, 1906). The parish had grown to about 125 families at this time.
