Waxahachie is a historic little city located due south of Dallas on I-35-E, about 20 miles south of I-20. We’re at the junction with US highways 287 and 77.We were at one time a major railroad hub, but those days are long gone! Quaint might describe the downtown area, but most days, it’s bustling with visitors from all over.
The second sheet gives you a map and some suggestions for things to see while you’re in town. You may like it so much, you’ll want to stay… like many of us have decided to do! We can line you up with a good realtor!
