Maybe you can't pronounce it, but that doesn't mean you can't trip it and have an incredible time. From the
history, to the food, to the passionate people carrying on traditions. It’s time you make your own TRIPSAHACHIE!
Organized and run by the locals, this is the best place to learn about life(ahachie) in town. Take a trip back in time and learn about the historic figures of Waxhachie and Ellis County.
And while you’re in downtown for the museum be sure to look closely at the Ellis County Courthouse and see if you can spot all the carved faces hidden among the stones!
See some familiar (and spooky!) faces at Sandra McKee’s recreated Munster Mansion. She scoured the 1960s television show “The Munsters” to build this exact replica and fans of the show will notice that not one creepy, crawly thing is out of place! You’ll even find Spot hiding out under the stairs!
This place is so good, apparently folks are coming back from the dead to dine here. While you enjoy your fried catfish, check out the giant binders up front of unexplained activity within the little 1865 Victorian home, or if you’re especially lucky, maybe you’ll just have your own paranormal experience…
It’s pretty clear that Matt Pittman was born to be a pitmaster, and now he’s here to teach you his smokey ways. Head to his downtown store to pick up some of his delicious meat rubs, or join him for a full on “service” of Meat Church (in his own backyard!) to see firsthand how he cooks up some of the most delicious ‘cue in the state.
Settle in for a game of airsoft on the largest airsoft field in Texas, complete with buildings, battlefields and vehicles. If you’ve never played it, air soft is similar to paintball, but cooler because it doesn’t hurt as much and the ammo is cheaper. So what are you waiting for…take a shot!
