Continuing with the Central Texas Waco/Temple/Kileen area posts we have Richland Mall in Waco Texas which opened in 1980. This is the largest of the Waco/Temple/Kileen area malls at over 700,000 square feet of space. The mall was undergoing a significant renovation on my visit to a plain vanilla color scheme.
None of the malls in this region have much history available online. They will finally get their 15 minutes of fame on this blog. One of the Dillard's stores was formerly a Wilson's/Service Merchandise store, my guess is that the Dillard's Men's store was the one.

JCPenney with the mirrored glass entrance. As you can see the mall was under construction so I did not get to see much of the finished product.
