Built in 1912 – Family Home – School House – Community Center – Community Park – Couple’s Retreat

The official history of this amazing property: The 2.7 acre tract constituted the northeast corner of the one hundred acre farm acquired in 1912 by B.I. and Mamie Binford, the paternal grandparents of Marialice (“Bennie”) and Jessie Stone Binford, Jr. “(J.S”). In 1913, B.I. conveyed the tract to Lynn Grove School District #11, where Stone Binford, Bennie’s and J.S.’ father, attended school. When the school district was consolidated with the Navasota School District, the land and the buildings reverted, by deed provision, to the B.I. Binford Estate. In 1952, Mamie Binford conveyed the property to the Lynn Grove Community and it became the Mamie Binford Park. In 1966, two years after it was no longer used for a community center, it once again, by reversionary clause in the deed, reverted to the Binford Estate. Stone and Eglan Binford acquired “The Corner” on February 11, 1966 from the 33 living heirs of B.I. and Mamie, and remodeled the old school building for their retirement home. “Bennie” and “J.S.”, and later their children, inherited “Binford Corner”. In the summer of 2021 one of the heirs, Dan Weaver’s second cousin, approached us about buying the property. We are honored to be the next caretakers of this very special place.
