Welcome to Ben Wheeler, Texas


Fueled by childhood memories of a once-thriving town and a desire to give back to the community, Brooks Gremmels bought property – lots of it – in and around small, unincorporated Ben Wheeler along Hwy. 64 and FM 773 in southern Van Zandt County. His plan: to return the town back to its 1935 look and to bring new businesses, and inspire a new community-friendly attitude and sense of pride back into the area through events, festivities and other social projects.

News and Announcements


Coming Soon! We are proud to announce the addition of Mr. B's Antiques to our Ben Wheeler community! Mr. B's Antiques will be located between Moore's Store and the Secret Garden in the former space of the Flying Fish Gallery.

We are excited to bring in 2016 not only with Mr. B's Antiques, and our anchor shops, Harrison Custom Knives and the Secret Garden, but also Gum Creek Mercantile now located in downtown Ben Wheeler! Gum Creek Mercantile offers quality wood products made locally from Texas trees as well as engraving services.

Thank you all for your continued support through the New Year!
