  Waxahachie is Picture Perfect  
 
Begin Your Visit at the Historic Ellis County Courthouse
Begin your visit on the steps of the historic Ellis County Courthouse.  Built in 1895 this working courthouse provides the focal point for Waxahachie’s thriving downtown shopping district.  Ringed with buildings built over 100 years ago, Waxahachie’s downtown is a shopper’s paradise.

Whether you’re looking for antiques, collectibles, gifts, crafts, or women’s apparel you’ll find something wonderful around every corner.  You’ll find a number of restaurants, cafés and pubs perfect for a leisurely lunch or a quick snack.

No visit is complete without a tour of the hundreds of historic homes quietly nestled in the neighborhoods surrounding downtown Waxahachie. Over 20% of the Texas entries on the National Register of Historic Places can be found in Waxahachie. A quick trip to the Ellis County Museum and they will provide you a driving tour to all these historic locations.
 
Downtown Offers So Many Things to Do for all Ages...
Throughout the year, Downtown Waxahachie provides the backdrop for hundreds of festivals and events, large and small.  There are large events like the Bob Phillips Texas Country Reporter Festival & Waxahachie’s Cinco De Mayo Festival.

Events for history buffs like the Gingerbread Trail Tour Of Homes, Annual Chautauqua Assembly, WWII Veterans’ Day Reenactment, Bethlehem Revisited and the Christmas Candlelight Home Tour.  There are parades at Mardi Gras, the Crape Myrtle Festival on the 4th of July, and a Christmas Parade to complete our holidays. 

You will find other events like the Lions Club Mini Grand Prix race during the spring, where teams race around the square and create a great deal of excitment.  It's just like the Texas Motor Speedway, only smaller cars!

Whether its moonlight movies, music, the Farmers Market, you will certainly see why Waxahachie definitely deserves more than a weekend visit.
