By accident, we discovered that the town of Ben Wheeler was more than just a pit stop between shoots for The Texas Bucket List. The allure of the town and it’s history made us want to know more, just as it captured the attention of the man who rebuilt the former ghost town. Stay tuned for Part 2 as we dig deeper to learn about the man who made Ben Wheeler into the artisan hub that it is today.
In the second half of the episode, we learn about Brooks Gremmels and his dream to restore the town of Ben Wheeler. The town remembers the legacy of this man who, at the time of our visit, had recently succumbed to pancreatic cancer. Visit this close-knit community and feel the love they have for their arts, their crafts, and their benefactor. It’s more than well worth a stop on The Texas Bucket List.
