For over 150 years, visitors have enjoyed the culturally and historically rich attractions of Waxahachie that are interwoven with the history of Texas. The famed Shawnee Trail ran through the center of town, now known as the Historic Downtown District.
Waxahachie, designated in the early 1900's as Queen of the Cotton Belt, has grown to be known as the Gingerbread City for the ornate woodwork found on many of the historic homes, as well as being designated the Crape Myrtle Capital of Texas.
