For me, Waco was the place I've been to the most often besides my own hometown, with visits often focusing on my grandfather's house (both houses, he moved in the early 2000s) and later my uncle's house. Despite being somewhat comparable to my hometown, it always felt old and run-down, which to a large extent, it was. As things continue to change in Waco to become larger and newer, with chain restaurants running up and down I-35, I wanted to archive Waco as it was. Too often "history" doesn't happen until it happened decades later, and even then, a very selective sort of history focusing on a few people who played a small part in the city's history. (This is a chief complaint I have of WacoHistory.org).
Like my Bastrop page, some of this I actually added to Wikimapia at some point but like I learned with Wikipedia, better your own stuff than a collaborative effort that often gets lost and misused (like the actual Wikipedia). Unlike the Bastrop page, I have more things in mind for this page with a dozen more in various states of construction.
Some of the previous pages here (including Catfish King) have been folded into the Valley Mills page.The sections here are as follows:
