About Waverly, IA

Located in northeast Iowa, Waverly is a beautiful, extraordinary community of nearly 10,000 residents. It is a place for families to live and a community where residents enjoy a high quality of life, friendly and progressive merchants, and a college town atmosphere.

Incorporated in 1859, Waverly recently celebrated its rich history during its Sesquicentennial celebration. The city was founded along the Cedar River by William Patterson Harmon who is also credited for establishing Waverly as the Bremer County Seat. Over the years, Waverly has grown with the establishment of Wartburg College and the introduction of rail transportation. Today, Waverly is a vibrant, progressive community with a diverse commercial, agricultural, financial and industrial base.

Waverly’s central business district spans the Cedar River, while numerous other businesses and industries are uniquely nestled through the community. An impressive inventory of community assets includes 12 miles of trails and paths, two 18-hole golf courses – one public and one private – a new public library, the new city-owned Waverly Health Center, the new 200,000 square-foot Wartburg-Waverly Sports & Wellness complex, and abundant cultural opportunities which accompany a community with a liberal arts college.

Waverly’s downtown is designated as a Main Street Iowa District. The district is home to a quality mix of service businesses, specialty shops, destination stores and restaurants. These businesses along with others are part of evolving “life and leisure” business clusters.

As the 17th fastest growing city in Iowa, Waverly maintains a focus on balanced growth and is an ideal location for commercial, industrial and corporate headquarters and retail developments.
