Community Profile

Beyond the stats, a story of growth.

Beyond the numbers game of demographics, it’s important to note the story beyond the stats. In Wharton, that story is one of notable growth in business investment and continually-expanding sales tax revenues (doubled since 1998). All together, it makes for a picture of fiscal health and prosperity. We’ve never put a border on the possible, and we’ve never taken our eyes off the future. Now, with Interstate access easier than ever and with Houston continuing to grow, we’re also expanding our own horizons. Wharton is more than the sum of its population; it’s the character of our community that adds the assurance of real strength to our numbers. Our profile is stable; our future is strong.
