WAXAHACHIE, TX — If you’re looking for some good ol’ fashioned country cooking, then the Catfish Plantation in Waxahachie has just what you’re craving!

“We’re Waxahachie’s oldest sit-down restaurant, we’re one of the oldest in the county as well.” said front of house manager, Amelia Landis-Sparks, “We’ve been serving up fresh catfish for many years!”

Yeah, and they serve it up right, but homestyle cooking isn’t the only thing in store for you when you walk into this house that’s over a century old.

“To go along with being 120 years old, people were born in their homes and they also passed away in their homes.” said Sparks.

And some of them may never have left! Rumor has it, ghosts walk amongst the tables at the Catfish Plantation, and everyone that’s worked there has a story or two to tell.

“We have a doorbell on our side bell that used to be one of the original doors to the front. We’ve had that ring by itself when there’s nobody on the other side.” recounted Sparks.

She went on, “One of my most memorable experiences that I have had, I went to go check the ladies restroom and as I went in there I pulled out the trash and wiped down the counter and when I stepped into the hallway and turned off the lights, as soon as I stepped through the threshold, the faucets came on on both sides of the women’s sink!”

There may be a lot to these stories, too! Take a look at the story and the evidence that Newsfix captured at the restaurant!
