Texas Longhorns in Waco TX - Waco is hardly the most famous place around, but, boy, does it reflect the face, the popular image of Texas. Situated between Austin and Dallas, Waco was located on the important Chisholm Trail, the north-south route used to transport cattle from ranches in Texas to railheads in Kansas.
The Waco Suspension Bridge is the centerpiece of Waco's downtown. The old bridge features the 'Branding the Brazos Cattle Drive Sculpture' - bronze sculptures commemorating the crossing where cowpunchers paid a toll of five cents per head of longhorn cattle to cross the Brazos River. The statues are a part of the Waco Chisholm Trail Heritage sculpture project, a work in progress, as more sculptures are coming, paying homage to Waco's role along the historic cattle-drive trail, where many herds of Texas Longhorns from deep south Texas made their Brazos River crossing over this bridge.
Waco and the Heart of Texas have deep ties to Texas history. Little Waco, 22nd in population with only 125,000 souls within its city limits, is the perfect destination to get the feel of this legendary place called Texas.
