Magnolia & MORE!

Thursday, October 20, 2022

Departing Abilene

$145 per person
$25 due upon booking – Final due September 5, 2022

Highlights Include:

  • Magnolia Market at the Silos, made famous by HGTV’s Chip & Joanna Gaines Market,  encompasses two city blocks in downtown Waco. The Gaineses completely transformed the Waco landmark, which helped to change the city as well as many surrounding areas.  Attractions include a whiffle ball field, shops, a coffee press, and gardens, as well as the relocation of the historic Waco Church to the 4.9-acre site.
  • Homestead Craft Village showcases the work of community of craftsmen who have returned, not to the past, but to the enduring values exemplified in handcraftsmanship. True craft requires more than skill: it expresses the craftsmen’s care and concern, their personal investment in everything they do.
  • Lunch included
