There Are More Than 80 Historic Buildings In This Special Texas Town
Most people would assume that the largest cities in any state would have the most historic buildings simply because of their size. While that makes complete and utter sense, we don’t like playing by the rules here in Texas. Waxahachie, a town of about 30,000, has over 80 buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places – that’s more than anywhere else in the Lone Star State, including even Houston!
That fact is incredible enough without even taking a look at the incredible architecture, so you’ll be even more blown away when you see some of these places.
