America's Fastest Growing Counties For the 21st Century

98th Fastest Growing County In the Nation
Ellis County, Texas
Seat: Waxahachie

Ellis County is the 98th fastest growing county in the US based on rate of growth between January 2000 and July 2006 for all counties that began the century with more than ten thousand inhabitants, according to recent U.S. Census Bureau estimates.

Ellis County which was founded in 1849, grew in population to 111,358 by the year 2000. In the six years that marked the beginning of the 21st Century, the county increased the number of inhabitants by 25.1 percent bringing the estimated total population in July 2006 to 139,300.

The outstanding growth of the last six years has made Ellis County the thirteenth fastest growing county in the Lone Star State of Texas and the 98th fastest in the nation.

The median value for homes within the 940 square mile jurisdiction of Ellis County was $91,400 in 2000 but the Bureau had no estimates on home value for 2006. Determining how the rapid growth may have affected the value of homes in the area is difficult but the current auctions that follow should give some indication of the bargains still available.
