Waxahachie, Texas, might not be located in the central park of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, but it has still long benefited from its location in North Texas.
Located right at the intersection of U.S. 77 and U.S. 287, Waxahachie has been an important economic producer for the North Texas region throughout its long history, dating back to its days as a strictly agricultural community in the middle of the 19th century.
At that time, Waxahachie’s economy was driven by cotton, similar to the rest of the region, and Waxahachie was home to one of the first textile mills in the state. Today, the area has become more industrial, and with modernization has come easier access to modern services like LASIK eye surgery. Laser vision correction is an effective way to clear up vision that has gotten worse over time, and there are several eye centers both in Waxahachie (like at the Baylor Medical Center) and in the Metroplex.

The industrialization of Waxahachie proceeded over recent years, as several industrial companies have opened bases of operation in the city. Owens Corning, Georgia-Pacific, James Hardie, and AEP are a few examples of the industrial companies providing Waxahachie residents with employment and producing materials for the Metroplex and beyond.
Mostly a modest town (even now with a population just above 30,000), Waxahachie has had its taste of fame. In the 1980s, the town was the shooting location of a handful of movies, including Tender Mercies (for which Robert Duvall won Best Actor), Places in the Heart (for which Sally Field won Best Actress) and The Trip to Bountiful (for which Geraldine Page won Best Actress).
While Waxahachie may seem a bit distant from the activity of the Metroplex, its residents still have easy access to important services like LASIK eye surgery. Visit your local eye care center to learn more about the benefits of LASIK eye surgery.
