Cleveland Historical was a success and Sloan saw the opportunity to replicate it in Waco with the construction of a new museum, the Texas Historical Museum, in the city center. The following year, Waco Village was incorporated as the city of WACO, and in the same year, the Tenth Civil Appeals Court was established and settled in Eureka, Texas (now known as "the Tenth Court of Appeals"), created by the Texas Legislature. This year, a new district court was built, and in the same years, a tenth civil court and a Texas Supreme Court were established.
When McLennan County was founded in 1850, Waco Village was chosen as the county seat and the city donated free land to the city for public use. A 1987 article in the WACO Tribune-Herald stated that Mount Carmel, a small town of about 1,000 people, had moved to the outskirts of Waco and settled on a 189-acre property near Lake Waca. About 25 miles from W ACO, it was given a public park where it hosted hospitality guests, as well as other residents and visitors.
The school changed its name to Add - Ran Christian University and moved to Waco in 1901, where it was renamed Texas Christian College in 1902 and resided in an empty building at WACO. Other religious private schools, including Mount Carmel College, the University of Texas at Austin and Texas State University, also operated in the city at the time. In 1902, Add'Ran changed the name of the Texas Christian University school but left Waco after the main building burned down in 1910.
The Waco Classical School, founded in 1860, became the University of Waco in 1861 and merged with Baylor University in 1887, which had moved to WACO and became Texas State University. Today, Wacaco is known for its high-quality shopping, restaurants, hotels and entertainment. The Shofur 18 luxury bus service has recently been offering amenities such as wifi and power outlets. Other long-time residents say the recent hotel construction and construction of a hardware store at Waca have given the city a more positive image.
