Waxahachie, designated in the early 1900's as Queen of the Cotton Belt, has grown to be known as the Gingerbread City for the ornate woodwork found on many of the historic homes, as well as being designated the Crape Myrtle Capital of Texas. Waxahachie also claims the title of Movie Capital of Texas, with over thirty motion pictures and three Academy Award films (The Trip to Bountiful, Places in the Heart, and Tender Mercies), and is recognized as being Picture Perfect by the movie industry.
