Many Sabine area families have long wanted a weekend and vacation retreat in this beautifully wooded part of East Texas with its clear streams and rolling hills. Few such places have ever been available though because most of the land is owned by a few owners and is used for growing timber. With this in mind I have started development of a 1200 acre block of land that I hope will furnish many families, and particularly the children, many happy days of relaxation and healthful recreation in the water, woods and sun.
