Downtown Waxahachie

In 2014, Jim Lake Companies completed the purchase of many buildings on Waxahachie’s historic downtown square. Among the buildings purchased is the 103-year-old historic Roger’s Hotel, which currently operates with retail, restaurant, office, and loft tenants, and a third floor event venue.

Following the purchase of The Roger’s Hotel came the building at the corner of Main and Monroe streets. A motorcycle shop, bakery, and children’s boutique sit below twelve beautiful lofts, which feature fireplaces, polished concrete, and wood flooring made from reclaimed basketball flooring.  Learn more about this property at

The former County Bank Building is leased to a seafood and steak restaurant, which occupies the main floor and mezzanine level.  Executive offices sit above the restaurant, and big plans for the intimate basement space are the works. The intricate original detailing, old bank vaults, and porcelain flooring contribute to the beauty of the space.

Just across the street, the former County Records building has been redeveloped into retail spaces, second floor lofts above. The apartments have large windows that give tenants a view of the immaculate Ellis County Courthouse, the most photographed courthouse in the state of Texas.

The most recent purchase in downtown Waxahachie is the Texas Theatre, a staple of the community, which after some necessarily renovations, will once again operate as an event venue.
