{Waxahachie Wednesday // Love Lock Wall}

Another fun Waxahachie attraction (playing off the "A Place in Your Heart, Texas") is the Love Lock Wall located in the downtown area. This fence is located on a 100+ year-old crumbling retaining brick wall. Instead of tearing it down, they came up with this fun and unique idea of a place where visitors and residents could publicly display their love for each other, or for the town by placing a heart-shaped lock on the fence. 

Mayor Kevin Strength and his wife were the first to place their love locks on the fence. Since then, it has filled up with locks from others. Visitors are encouraged to share their pictures and use the hashtag #hachieheart on social media. 

These heart locks can be purchased at the Ellis County Museum for $10 dollars, or you can bring your own. The museum is located at 201 South College Street, Waxahachie, TX 75165. Business hours are 10am -5pm M-S. Admission to the museum is completely free but donations are certainly welcome. 

This is something I have been wanting to do for the longest time! Once I decided that I was going to do Waxahachie Wednesday series both here on the blog and on Instagram, I knew this was something we had to finally do! We purchased our lock and made a little Sunday afternoon date out of it!  

 I'm so excited that we now have a heart-shaped lock on the fence, symbolizing our love for one another as well as our love for this warm and charming little town that we get to call home.
