Facts About Hempstead
Hempstead is a city in Waller County, Texas, United States, part of the Houston–The Woodlands–Sugar Land metropolitan area. It serves as the county seat of Waller County.
The community, located at the junctions of U.S. Highway 290, Texas State Highway 6, and Texas State Highway 159, is around 50 miles northwest of downtown Houston. The population was 5,770 at the 2010 census.
Hempstead is famous for its watermelon crop, and until the 1940s, the town was the top shipper of watermelons in the United States. Billy DiIorio was known as the Watermelon King and Angelina DiIorio was known as the Watermelon Queen. Both resided in Hempstead, Texas. The town holds an annual Watermelon Festival in July.
The town has grown in recent years because of its relative closeness to Houston along U.S. Highway 290. The current economy is based on county government, shipping, and a small but growing industrial base. However, the closing of a large auto dealership (Lawerence Marshall) in 2009 hurt the community’s economy and correlated with a drop in the town’s population. The town has, however, rebounded in its population since 2010.
One of the town’s residents was Lillie E. Drennan, who in 1929 became the first woman to hold a commercial driver’s license in Texas. She ran a regional hauling company called the Drennan Truck Line while maintaining an excellent driving record.
