Find Your Selfie in Downtown Waxahachie

Written by Waxahachie CVB Staff

Historic downtown Waxahachie has been used as a backdrop not only by Hollywood for 30+ major movies, it’s also a destination for family photographs, senior pics, prom memories and, last but not least, selfie spots!

Here’s a list of some of our favorites photograph spaces that we’ve seen pop up on our Facebook and Instagram feed:

1. Ellis County Courthouse – We feel compelled to start our list with this magnificent structure being that it has been the most popular backdrop in downtown Waxahachie for the past 125 years. Plus, it’s the most photographed courthouse in the state of Texas. Located at 101 W. Main.
