Stay in a Waco TX Bed and Breakfast while you explore this interesting slice of Central Texas. Start in prehistoric times with a visit to the Waco Mammoth Site, which has the largest concentration of mammoths dying from the same event yet discovered. Peruse the bookshelves of your Waco Texas Bed and Breakfast for information about the Wichita Native Americans known as "Waco" or "Hueco" who lived in this part of north Central Texas, west of the Brazos River. They abandoned their village when the Cherokee, forced west by colonization, attacked.
The first Anglo-Americans settled the area in the late 1830s. About 30 years later, the citizens worked together to build a bridge across the wide Brazos River; when completed, in 1870 it was the longest span of bridge west of the Mississippi River. Institutes of higher learning have been an integral part of the city since the 1880s, and the Mayborn Museum Complex at Baylor University features a natural history museum worth visiting. A different but equally fascinating museum is the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum, which educates the public on the history of the law enforcement agency founded in 1823.
In recent years, Waco has thrived as the White House Press Center whenever President George W. Bush was residing at his ranch in Crawford, about 20 miles west of Waco. The relatively small downtown area is being rejuvenated. Speak with the hosts of your Waco Bed and Breakfast to learn some of their favorite restaurants and shops in the area, and enjoy your stay.
