Family tradition holds that Daniel Boone surveyed the land where Waveland now stands for his nephew and namesake, Daniel Boone Bryan.

Revolutionary soldier in North Carolina militia, Indian fighter, historian, and farmer, Daniel Boone Bryan erected a simple stone house on the 2000-acre site. He began developing the land in the early 19th-century, and by the time of his death in 1845, he had built a plantation that included a blacksmith shop, a gunsmith shop, a powder mill for producing gunpowder, a distillery, a gristmill, a paper mill, a female seminary, and a Baptist church. The prosperity of the Bryan family contributed to the area's progress as well.
