Texas, U.S.A.
Welcome to Waco, Texas.
Waco is situated along the Brazos River and the I-35, halfway between Dallas and Austin. With around 125,000 residents, Waco is the county seat of McLennan County, Texas. The story of Waco began in 1838, when Neil McLennan settled in an area near the South Bosque River. A man named Jacob De Cordova purchased the property from McLennan, and hired Texas Ranger and surveyor George B. Erath to inspect the area, who subsequently ended up designing the first city block in 1849. The original settlement was named Waco Village after the Native Americans who had previously lived there, and was later shortened to Waco when it incorporated as a city. Downtown Waco may be small compared to other cities in Texas such as Houston or Dallas, but it is quite dense thanks to the nearly 20,000 people who commute to and from work in the city center. Downtown is home to the historic ALICO building, which was built in 1910 and once the tallest structure in the entire Southwest. Downtown Waco is also home to the famous Dr. Pepper Museum, because of the fact that the very first Dr. Pepper soda was created here. Residents also have access to quite a bit of scenic areas, like the beautiful river-walk along the east and west banks of the Brazos River, which stretches from the Baylor campus to Cameron Park Zoo. In terms of education, Waco is home to quality elementary, middle and high schools as well as three terrific institutions of higher learning; Baylor University, McLennan Community College and Texas State Technical College. Should you find yourself in Waco, don't miss the many great attractions the city has to offer, such as the Hawaiian Falls Waterpark, the tranquil Lake Waco, the Mayborn Museum Complex and the Texas Sports Hall of Fame!
