We stopped at Waxahachie for the Common Threads Quilt Shop if you can believe it! My sister and I are fabric lovers. We found an interesting shop online and when we saw the sign to Waxahachie we pulled off the highway.
Imagine our surprise when this amazing sight came in to view! I about threw my sister out of her seat cutting into a parking spot. It was over 100 degrees but I HAD to get out of the car and walk all of the way around the courthouse. This courthouse is breathtaking!
The 1849 building has angles and curves, carvings and stone in gray granite, pink granite and cream colored sandstone. It is a work of wonderful design! No matter what the weather, get out of the car and walk all of the way around. Read all of the plaques and soak it all in.
Waxahachie was about 15 miles off of our route but it was well worth the stop!
