Welcome to Cabin Creek…from the McMullen Family!
Ben and Dee have lived in Lindale, Texas since building their home in 2004. They have 4 children. Dale lives is Newton, Ks. Dan lives in Whitehouse, Tx. Dean lives in Kyle, Tx. and Darla lives in Lindale. They have 14 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. Two of the grandsons are currently serving in the Military, one in Iraq and one on the Texas/Mexico Border.
In 1999, Ben and Dee purchased some investment property in hopes that someday they could build their retirement home. With the help of their daughter, they were told about 50 acres in Lindale, Texas. As they were trying to locate the rural property, they got a little lost and came across a 71 acre plot of land for sale. They climbed over the old fence and cautiously made their way about 20 yards through vines and wild plum trees to a small opening. Looking around, they found themselves on a hill where they had a clear view from all directions. It was beautiful and it felt ‘right’. At that moment they agreed, “This is it”.
Later, they were told by the Parm Family that this property had been the Parm Family Homestead and that the Parm’s were the original owners of the property when Texas joined the Union in 1845 as the 28th State. In 1979, a gentleman from Garland, Texas purchased the land from the Parms’ decendents and Ben and Dee purchased it from him in 1999. Ben and Dee are the third owners of this property since Texas joined the Union. The land was used as farmland to raise cattle and crops and later it was used to grow roses. There are still some of those roses on the land today.
At a family gathering there was a discussion of things Ben could do in his spare time and one son suggested that he build a cabin on the land. Children, grandchildren, friends and others could have a nice, private place to stay when they are in the area. Needless to say Ben liked the idea and here we are today.
Ben still works part time driving trucks/buses and Dee is retired from teaching special needs students. They both want to stay close to home and greet the people who stay in the cabins. They take special pride in keeping the cabins and grounds clean and well taken care of.
