Waxahachie

Known for the legendary historic districts filled with Victorian "gingerbread" and accessible through driving and annual home tours, there are several must-sees in Waxahachie. Visit the only Chautauqua auditorium in Texas, still an active lecture, old time singing and performance venue. Only a brush or pastel will be allowed at the annual artist “quick draw" on the lawn of the awe inspiring and beautifully restored Ellis County Courthouse. Wander down to the tracks to appreciate the restored depot, Farmer’s market and historic local feed store now a surprising shopping destination
