Big Sandy … Hawkins… Holly Lake

You’ll want to visit Big Sandy on a Saturday, because Saxon Auctions: The Longest Running Auction in the State of Texas happens every Saturday night at 6:30pm. To get there, head East of 80 and when you get to the lake in Big Sandy, look on the North hill to see the auction barn. The entrance is marked by wagon wheels closer to the lake.

Spend the day 5 miles East on TX-80 in Hawkins and Holly Lake.  From Hwy 80, travel north on FM 14 and visit the Fusion Metal Art studio of Paul Silva at Studio Eight Zero Two. This sculpture and metal artist has unbelievable artwork you simply must see.

Turn north on FM14 another 5-7 miles to see a beautiful development of available new home sites called Wood Country Estates. The have a few 3/4 acre lots for sale that are right around $5,000. Well worth the price.

Further North on FM 2869 and you can visit Jack Hestand ETx Realty for beautiful listings in the area. You can also see some more of Paul Silva’s artwork I the lobby of Jack Hestand’s offices.
