Waverly history:

Waverly is the oldest existing village in the county. It is here where Jacob Wetzel and son, cut the first road across Indiana to Metamora. (Wetzel Trace) Also, this was an area for a French /Indian trading post located on the White River called Port Royal.

The first settler of what is now Waverly was Hiram T. Craig in 1819. Port Royal, just upriver, was settled in 1818 by Jacob Whetzel. Once considered as a site for the state capital, Port Royal no longer exists. Waverly is thought to be the oldest existing village in the county. Jacob Whetzel's gravesite may be found just south of Waverly. The construction of the Central Canal prompted the growth and development of Waverly. Cornelius Free built the largest grist mill in the state here which attracted hundreds of wagons at a time waiting for service at the mill. Other businesses followed the mill, including a storehouse, a corn drying kiln, and a woolen factory. In 1855, the town of Far West was absorbed into Waverly when the Post office name became official. By 1870, the canal project had gone bankrupt, but Waverly continued to grow and thrive.

Here is a history page for Waverly.

In March of 1822, Martinsville, Centerton and Waverly were all being considered for the site of the County seat for the new Morgan County. Martinsville, because of its central location, was designated as the county seat over Waverly and Centerton.
