Hempstead

The seat of Waller County was established in 1856. The town was long known as a "Six Shooter Junction." A most notable fight shocked the nation in 1905 when U.S. Congressman John Pinckney, his brother and two others were gunned down in the courthouse while meeting with prohibitionists who had won an election to ban booze.
