"The Gingerbread City"
The classic southern hometown, Waxahachie earned the title, “Gingerbread City”. A Texas Main Street community, Waxahachie is a unique local whose streets are lined with victorian homes and historic buildings. To crown it all a stands a stunning and elegantly maintained downtown square.
