Waxahachie (pronounced /ˌwɒksəˈhætʃi/) is a city in Ellis County, Texas, United States, and a southern suburb of Dallas. The population was 21,426 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of Ellis County.[3]

Waxahachie was the birthplace of Tom Blasingame, considered the oldest cowboy in the history of the American West, R&B singer Tevin Campbell, Bill Hamm (manager for ZZ Top), and Byron Nelson, a professional golf legend. It was said that Edward (Chief Wahoo) McDaniel was from Waxahachie, but he was born in Bernice, Oklahoma.

In 1988 the area around Waxahachie was chosen as the site for the Superconducting Super Collider, which was to be to be world's largest and most energetic particle accelerator, with a planned ring circumference of 87.1 kilometers (54.1 miles). Seventeen shafts were sunk and 23.5 km (14.6 mi) of tunnel were bored[4] before the project was cancelled by Congress in 1993.
