Waco, TX Photos

Waco, TX became the major town on the Chisholm Trail between Austin and Fort Worth due to a suspension bridge (1870) across the Brazos River which concentrated the cattle drives. Today travelers can visit several heritage buildings and museums which arose from the wealth of the Victorian era.
