A thriving, growing city, Waco owes much of its success to its location. Approximately halfway between Austin and Dallas, Waco’s location attracted 19th century cattle drovers and countless immigrants, while the arrival of Interstate 35 spurred growth during the last half of the 20th century. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the population of Waco, TX was estimated to be more than 134,400 in 2016. When Wacoites need repairs performed on their residential or commercial roofs, metal roofs or asphalt shingles installed, roof maintenance plans, new siding, or damage inspections, they often ask Alpha Roofing for help, secure in the knowledge that Alpha will provide high-quality results.
Waco, TX – The History
Although many towns in Central Texas were founded by railroads, Waco was a bustling community long before the Waco Tap Railroad arrived in 1870. The first European settlers arrived during the late 1840s, and the town was officially incorporated in 1856. Waco University was founded in 1861, by which time the city was home to two newspapers and a ferry operation across the Brazos River. In 1866, the town’s citizens launched a project to construct the first bridge over the Brazos, completing the 475-foot suspension bridge in 1870.
In 1886, Baylor University relocated from Independence to Waco, merging with Waco University. Baylor has been an important part of the city’s economy ever since and remains one of the top employers in Waco. In the intervening years, however, Waco’s economy has grown to include significant contributions from the health care, retail and high-tech industries. Agriculture, particularly cotton, still plays a role in the local economy.
