Chamber Electrical Coalition

The Chamber Electricity Coalition offers a great advantage to Wharton Chamber members. Many of our members are small businesses, which may not have the buying power or time to negotiate the lowest prices possible for retail electricity. This is what the coalition does, negotiating on our members’ behalf for the best rates that the marketplace offers.

To those who already are Coalition members, thank you! If you have not joined thus far, we urge your consideration. Look for the links to the  “Easy Form” application and some additional information.

If you need help, call the chamber at 979-532-1862 or email, or contact Jessica Dusek at 512- 676-0928 or Thank you!

Stay a day or two or three


9:30a.m. – Downtown Wharton

Visit Monterey Square, with its antique shops, coffee house, gift stores and the exquisite, historically-restored Wharton County Courthouse. Built in 1889, the courthouse was designed by noted architect Eugene Heiner and was brought back to its original glory in 2007 at a cost of $7.4 million.

The east side of the square is called the Burger Block, and includes the Burger Robertson Building, constructed in 1909, and the W. Roberts Building, constructed in 1919.

Don’t miss the murals. Completed by Texas artist Dayton Wodrich, they detail the county’s rich agricultural, religious and medicinal history.

Noon – Lunch Time

There’s a host of restaurants in the city, including some in the downtown area. For those craving some Tex-Mex, try Cuevos Mexican Restaurant, Los Cucos Mexican Restaurant, or Larry’s Mexican Restaurant, all located in the downtown area or nearby. There’s others, too — see our visitor’s guide. You can get one at the coffee shop or the chamber office, 225 N. Richmond Road.

1:30 p.m. – Morris Ranch Carriage House Museum

Among the meticulously restored and maintained carriages is the one that carried Vivien Leigh in the movie “Gone With the Wind.” Call ahead to make an appointment: 979-532-1862. The museum is located at 2110 CR 117, east of the city. There may be a fee.

3:00 p.m. – Back to town

For a late afternoon pick-me-up, try a specialty frappe or an iced tea at Milam Street Coffee (the kids might enjoy a scoop of Blue Bell Ice Cream). There’s plenty of benches around Monterey Square to enjoy the scenery; or, if the weather is uncooperative, stay inside at the coffee house and visit with friends and strangers alike while enjoying their flat screen TV […]
