Local Reviews

Since we move here my family loved the neighborhood specially my kids,downtown is 5m drive not a lot of traffic,all my neighbors are really good and friendly people,and another thing is so quite.

I like being near the bank and shopping. There are some nice parks. There are some good restaurants nearby.

I just moved from Waxahachie Texas a out 3 weeks ago and moved in to this house. It6nothing to brag about but at least I have a roof over my head.

It's fairly close to my job, and my step-daughters school. Also we are centralized near shopping and restaurants.

There's nothing unique about my neighborhood. It's considered the poor part of town but there have been many innovations.

I prefer a retro store near the community, where I can buy a lot of things I like, and I can meet many new friends in it

About

Waxahachie, TX

Overview of Waxahachie

Waxahachie, Texas, is known for its breathtaking Victorian buildings, historic layout and semi-rural vibe. Located about 30 miles south of Dallas and 40 miles southeast of Fort Worth, the small Texas city is home to more than 29,600 people, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Founded in 1850, Waxahachie has long been one of Texas' important commercial centers. The city's boom happened in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and included a strong cotton economy.

The Depression era made for gloomy economic forecasts throughout the country. It wasn't until the Post World War II era that Waxahachie's economy began to recover.
