The name of the original settlement was Waverly Mills, given its name after a community in Waverly, New York, the former home of one of the partners. It was constructed by a surveyor and his partners. They constructed a dam, a saw mill, and a grist mill in 1865 at the outlet of Little Waverly Lake. Waverly Mills managed to survive a rough start with a bank panic, financial crash, and subsequent grasshopper infestations. The saw and grist milling industry helped establish a store, post office, and a log church with a cemetery. The village of Waverly gained the Waverly Station in 1869 when the Saint Paul and Pacific Railroad was extended to that point in Wright County. A post office has been in operation at Waverly since 1869 as well. Waverly Mills began to be incorporated in 1881, although the process remained under township jurisdiction for approximately ten additional years, during which time complete severance from the township was achieved. The community's name was changed in 1899, this time to simply Waverly. The Waverly Village Hall, built in 1939, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

WAVERLY, a city in section 33 of Marysville, was founded in 1869, when the building of the St. Paul and Pacific Railroad reached this site, and it was incorporated as a village on March 8, 1881. Its name was received from the adjacent Big and Little Waverly Lakes and from an earlier Waverly village platted in 1856 at the outlet of the Little Waverly Lake. The name was originally given by the Colwell brothers, who with others were proprietors of that earlier townsite, for Waverly in Tioga County, N.Y., their former home, which derived it from Sir Walter Scott's Waverley novels, published in 1814-28. The post office began as Zellingen, 1863-69, and was changed to Waverly Mills, 1869-99; it was briefly called Waverly Station, December 12, 1871-January 14, 1872, and became Waverly in 1899.
