You Can Tour the Historic Waco Castle from Chip and Joanna Gaines' New Fixer Upper Spinoff
Chip and Joanna Gaines are inviting fans to experience their biggest renovation to date: a real-life castle.
In Fixer Upper: Welcome Home – The Castle, the Gaineses take on the Herculean task of breathing new life into a nineteenth-century castle in Waco, Texas. Over the course of eight episodes, the couple tackles its challenging infrastructure while preserving its original beauty.
But before the show premieres on discovery+ in September, the Gaineses are offering "intimate guided tours" of the castle. It's the first time in Fixer Upper history that fans have an opportunity for in-person tours of a home from the show.
A representative for Magnolia told Insider that the group tours will give visitors a look at every room in the historic Cottonland Castle. While most of the tour will focus on Joanna's design approach, visitors will also learn about its fascinating history.
"For nearly 20 years, we dreamed and imagined what it would be like to breathe new life into this abandoned, century-old castle," Chip and Jo told Insider. "Finally having the opportunity, we're again reminded that there's great reward in unearthing beauty in unexpected places."
"The doors are open once again, and we can't wait to host you here at the Castle so you can experience this stunning historical home in all its glory," the couple added.
According to Insider, the one-hour tours will run from July 21 to October 26, Monday through Saturday. Tickets cost $50, though children seven years old and younger get in for free. Plus, 20% of profits will be donated to The Cove, a local non-profit benefiting the homeless youth of Waco.
