Location: 1.4 mi N, CR 105 at Jim Ned Creek

Mullins Heritage Park

In 1894, Brown County commissioners built a public road from Bangs to Cross Cut in the western part of the county. The chief crossing of Jim Ned Creek came at Mullins Ranch, so the county bought eleven acres here for the project. Brothers John Charles and William Haven Mullins and their families settled in Brown County in 1857, helping establish nearby towns of Mullin and Thrifty. Mullins Ranch was a regular stop for Methodist circuit preachers, and remained popular for camp meetings and recreation. The unfenced site was also a favored watering hole for cattlemen and area residents. Many of the traditional activities continue today at this historic gathering place.
