Joint Press Release – Gingerbread Trail and Christmas Tour of Homes

The Ellis County Museum and Historic Waxahachie, Inc. would like to announce that due to the pandemic, the Gingerbread Trail and Christmas Tour of Homes have been cancelled this year. It was not an easy decision to make or one we took lightly. We believe that everyone’s health and safety is our upmost concern: from our homeowners, members, tour docents and visitors. Hopefully, the current situation will improve.

Both tours are popular community events for tourists and local residents. We look forward to hosting them again next year.
