Waxahachie is a small town just outside of Dallas, known for it's many Victorian "gingerbread" homes and vibrant town square centered around the beautiful Ellis County Courthouse.

Art Adventures:

Waxahachie's Webb Gallery is a must-stop. Filled with folk and outsider art, as well as handcrafts and antiques, this longstanding art space exhibits work that is as interesting as it is unique. (Currently open Saturdays and Sundays by appointment.)

Downtown Waxahachie seems to have a mural around every corner! We really liked these:

Don't miss taking a rainbow-whirl around the six-foot kaleidoscope sculpture, a popular Waxahachie public art piece by artists Eddie and Mary Elizabeth Phillips. It's at the corner of Main and College streets across from the courthouse.
