This is an amazing courthouse, my favorites. You can spend time finding secret images carved around the structure.

The most recent Ellis County Museum annual meeting was at the court house. This is a beautiful structure and has been totally restored. It is certainly worth the time to visit this structure if you are in Waxahachie.

Loved this town. Full of shops and the courthouse. Beautiful and what a funny story about the faces. This building is amazing. Wish we could have stayed longer here but just passing through, worth going out of the way to see.

This building will knock your socks off, and we didn’t even go inside as it was too late. The whole town is packed with jaw dropping sights.
