Mullin in Mills County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Site of the Settlement of Williams Ranch
(4 Miles South)
†††††The settlement began to decline when the railroad bypassed it in 1885. An outbreak of mob violence was quelled by the Texas Rangers in 1887. By 1892 the post office and all businesses had closed. Today the site is marked by the natural springs that attracted the original settlers and by Williams Ranch Cemetery, burial place of many pioneers and their descendants.
