DescriptionBEAUTIFUL TREES, ROAD FRONTAGE & LOCATION
Multi functional tract that has road frontage that offers gentle elevation changes and gorgeous trees. This would be an exceptional location for a custom home, weekend cabin, recreational use or cattle. There is many locations sites for a lake. Deer are prevalent here as well as dove and other critters. The actual location is excellent putting the property in the center of Giddings and Caldwell yet just 2.5 miles to the quaint little town of Dime Box. There's an Old and a New Dime Box. The name comes from the practice of leaving a dime in a box at Brown's Mill to get a letter delivered to Giddings. This was before a Federal Post Office opened in 1877. Old Dime Box is the second oldest (Evergreen is the oldest) town in Lee County.
The PO opened under the name Brown's Mill or a variation thereof, and in short order a lot of mail was misdirected to Brownsville. The postal people were livid. They had a reputation for refusing names that could be confusing with existing post offices, but this one got right by them. Ordered to change the name, the townsfolk submitted Dime Box and it was accepted. In 1913, the Southern Pacific Railroad came within 3 miles of the town and almost everyone moved for the convenience this afforded. Enough remained to retain the name and they decided to become Old and New. This is a rare ending to a familiar story - but there you have it. "New Dime Box" opened the 1944 March of Dimes Campaign and the town was featured in Life magazine. The Postmaster General even showed up to be photographed on the front porch of the store with an oversized mailbox which was sent to the White House. Today an oversized vintage dime stands in a transparent case in downtown Dime Box. Adjoining tracts are available, all with paved road frontage. Please call for an appointment today. The area in general is continuing to grow so any of these tracts would make a great investment opportunity.
