Waxahachie has been nicknamed the Gingerbread City because of the architecture of several beautiful homes and buildings remaining from before 1900. A yearly tour known as the Gingerbread Trail showcases Victorian-style houses with gingerbread carpentry. The red sandstone and granite Victorian courthouse, designed by James Riely Gordon and completed in 1897, graces the town's square. The Nicholas P. Sims Library (1905) and the octagon-shaped Chautauqua Auditorium (1902), located in Getzendaner Park, are two unique examples of the 300 Waxahachie structures listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Ellis County Courthouse, built in 1895, is also one of the most photographed structures in the State of Texas and houses the Heritage Visitor Center of Waxahachie.
