About Us

www.benwheelertx.com [cached]

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.

Plans
Brooks' basic project through Ben Wheeler Development Company (BWDC) will take some time before his full vision comes to fruition. But when complete, Gremmels will have provided Ben Wheeler with a downtown and surrounding areas with sustainability and profitability for future generations to enjoy easy-living-conveniences life in Ben Wheeler can afford each of its residents - an endeavor that strives to afford the community with restaurants, a winery, downtown shops and artisans' wares, a fully restored downtown park complete with gazebos and stages for entertainment, a farmers market, a classic car museum and motorcycle hall of fame, and much, much more.
"We're working with a clean sheet of paper," Brooks explained. "When I grew up in Tyler and went back and forth to Dallas, Ben Wheeler was a nice little town," he said. "When I moved back 35 years later, I guess they'd lost their pride. It's a pleasure to have the opportunity to do something positive to help restore it."
Since last February, Gremmels and his team have been working on various projects which have included refurbishing old houses, buildings and store houses, cleaning up park land and putting on family-friendly events to help in that restoration of pride and community.
"I don't know if that's something we can really measure, but it's something you feel if you have it," he said.
...
Brooks, is a member of the Van Zandt County Historical Commission. As such, he is in constant communication with local residents for input into BWDC's plans.
"I've solicited all of the input I could get, especially from people who have lived here for generations," he said. "Many have furnished photos, and it's amazing how much history is in people's heads. We're putting together a pretty good picture of the way Ben Wheeler looked from the mid 1930s, and our long-term goal is to reconstruct the town similar to what it was in 1935. We want to try to recapture the feeling, the old-fashioned atmosphere where people walk and sit and visit and play dominos. historical commission veteran and Ben Wheeler native, Sybil Creasey, said Brooks wanted to know more about Ben Wheeler as soon as he joined the commission.
...
For Brooks and his wife, Rese, a Longview native, it's about giving back to the community.
...
"We want to raise the bar high enough so that we have something unique that will draw people into town," Brooks said.
...
Brooks has the means to renovate Ben Wheeler because of his business successes.
For more than 20 years, he managed oil and gas companies that operated several hundred wells. He also was president and CEO of WhamTech, which developed virtual data and information integration, sharing, and interoperability technology products. He started racing with the Central Motorcycle Roadracing Association in 1999 (well past his 50th birthday) and won several road-racing sprint championships. He served on CMRA's board of directors and was named to its hall of fame. In connection with his racing career, he founded Shogun Enterprises and Shogun Motorsports.
Brooks retired from Oil and Gas Producers/OGP Operating about five years ago, giving the company to its employees, moving back into this area, and buying ARC Ridge Ranch which is mostly used for youth gatherings and other special and charitable events.
"My retirement is a total failure," he said. "I intended to see if I could clean up the town a little, and one thing led to another."
Today, as more people move back into the country, Ben Wheeler may thrive again. It will if Brooks Gremmels, Rese, and their small band of men and women work with other local residents to make it happen.


Just about the only thing Brooks ...

Just about the only thing Brooks Gremmels has failed at, it seems, is retirement. The Tyler native, now 64 years old but looking 20 years younger, ran a successful natural gas development and production company, raced motorcycles, and created and partnered in several other companies. He retired nearly five years ago, but couldn't sit still.

Now, fueled by childhood memories of a once-thriving town and his desire to give back to the community, Brooks has bought property - lots of it - in and around small, unincorporated Ben Wheeler along Hwy. 64 and FM 773 in southern Van Zandt County. He plans to return it, basically, to its 1935 look and to bring new businesses and a new attitude to the area.
Brooks' basic project through Ben Wheeler Development Corporation will take at least three years - probably longer - to come to fruition with an even longer timeline for some projects. In a community with a thousand or so nearby residents, there will be a new Tex-Mex restaurant (Luna Rosa) on Hwy. 64, new shops downtown, a fully restored downtown park complete with gazebos, a classic car museum and motorcycle hall of fame, and more.
Brooks is reluctant to talk about changeable plans; he's happy to talk about the vision. "What can we do? We're seeking those answers now. We're working with a clean sheet of paper," he said. "When I grew up in Tyler and went back and forth to Dallas. Ben Wheeler was a nice little town," he said.
...
Brooks, a member of the Van Zandt County Historical Commission, constantly talks with local residents for input into the plans. "I've solicited all the input I could get, especially from people who have lived here for generations," he said.
...
Brooks recently hired a planning firm, Schrickel, Rollins and Associates from Arlington, to look at everything from civil engineering to landscaping to architecture and town planning. SRA will help figure out how to create areas where people congregate. "We are also going to follow the lead of Winnsboro and a number of other towns in bringing music in here - not concerts and paid admissions, but bring in people from this area who like to play music, and offer places where people can watch them play," Brooks said. "Our plans are still evolving. That's one reason we brought SRA into the process, to start tying the plans down. We're going to make this town better than when we found it, and make people proud to say they live in Ben Wheeler."
For 14 employees, the project is both a living and a passion. For Brooks and his wife, Rese, a Longview native, it's about giving back to the community. Although they could make some money from the venture, that's not the purpose.
In fact, the couple created a not-for-profit group, Ben Wheeler Historical & Art Foundation, to rebuild and build new spaces in the center of town. "That means the merchants who locate in the center of town will pay $1 a month rent, and their own utilities," Brooks said.
...
"We like having him here," said Brooks, who is buying the building from Nick's landlord.
...
"We want to raise the bar high enough that those folks have something unique that will draw people into town," Brooks said.
...
"He's got the imagination and common sense to help make this vision reality," Brooks said. "He's amazing. He runs his own saw mill and everything, and he really gets it. And David Roach has got to be the best carpenter in the county. He's in charge of all the construction crews, and he's hand-on and doing an amazing job."
Brooks has the means to renovate Ben Wheeler because of his business successes. For more than 20 years, the high-energy Brooks managed oil and gas companies that operated several hundred wells. He also was president and CEO of WhamTech which developed virtual data and information integration, sharing, and interoperability technology products. He started racing with the Central Motorcycle Roadracing Association in 1999 (well past his 50th birthday) and won several road-racing sprint championships.
