This city derived its name from its original organization on the banks of Waxahachie creek back in 1850. The name is derived from the native American word meaning “Buffalo Creek”, as they were the first to inhabit the area. The town and its economy was almost completely composed of agriculture, cattle, and cotton for a century until the opening of the first textile mill. The town’s most impressive landmark is the courthouse built in 1895 and it is still standing today and attracts many tourists. Also, the Historic Downtown District attracts both residents and visitors with its charming homes, antique shopping, specialty boutiques, as well as events and festivals throughout the year. Homeowners in Waxahachie have been pleased to see their overall home values and median list price per square foot on an upward incline since 2012. Market trends display neutrality, indicating an equal advantage for buyers and sellers. With 102 new construction home communities on the market, Waxahachie is still up & coming and might make the perfect home town for your family. Just like the market, Crosstown Engineering wants to equally assist buyers and sellers in their real estate journey, so please contact us with any engineering report, foundation evaluation, or home inspection services.
