Waverley homes for sale
View the most up-date real estate listings in Waverley below! In 1847, 700 acres of land was purchased for 50 pounds, which in today’s money would amount to $5,530. How’s that for a steal? The surrounding land at the time was used for farming and in 1861 a gold discovery was hit by the son in law of Charles P. Allen. From that time till the 20th century two major booms occurred and by 1930 when the third and final prospect came about the gold had all but gone. Since then it’s been home to many other industries.
