The Waco Indian tribe was driven out of Central Texas in the early 19th Century. For almost 80 years a historical marker outside Waco’s Helen Marie Taylor Museum memorialized the event. KWBU’s Jill Ament reports that Native American tribal leaders and local historians have pointed out that the information on the marker had it all wrong.
If you've ever been to West Fest or dined on a roadside kolache...it's no secret Central Texas has a vibrant Czech community. Some local organizations are working to preserve this culture for future generations to come.
This week we told you about Mike and Cindy Jacobus, the founders of Mclennan County Paranormal Investigations. They’re ghost hunters--yep just like the reality TV show--and they’ve started their own Ghost Tour in Waco. From its fame as “Six Shooter Junction” in the 1800s to the Tornado that leveled downtown in 1953, Waco has its fair share of ghoulish stories. And the Jacobus couple are here to tell them.
From its inception as a convenient place to drive cattle across the Brazos to the Tornado that leveled downtown in 1953, Waco has a lot of stories. Some of them more ghoulish than others. Tomorrow night a Waco couple—who happen to moonlight as ghost hunters—will kick-off a monthly ghost tour, telling some of those stories. And as KWBU’s Ryland Barton reports, the couple says they’ve found some haunted buildings…right in downtown Waco.
