Waco, Texas

Those of you who like to shop will love Waco's Magnolia Market at the Silos, commonly called Magnolia Market, is a shopping complex that encompasses two city blocks in downtown Waco, Texas. It is marked by two 120’ high silos, built in 1950 as part of the Brazos Valley Cotton Oil Company. The grounds opened to the public in October, 2015.

In addition to shopping, you might like to explore the following sites:

Oakwood Cemetery
At Oakwood Cemetery, lives lived are remembered. Whether sculpted in marble or carved in granite, there are many ways to be remembered.

Today, there are many available and extremely affordable spaces for sale in this 160 acre beautiful and peaceful cemetery filled with tree-lined streets. You will find some of the most dignified yet least expensive options from cremation inurnment in Oakwood’s Columbarium to burial spaces in all areas.
