Posts Tagged ‘Dutchman’s Hidden Valley Store’

One my favorite places to eat in Hamilton is the Dutchman’s Hidden Valley.

Hidden Valley began as a roadside produce stand owned by local rancher Johnny Harris.  He sold pecans, peaches and other seasonal fruit. Eventually, he built a shed and continued to add to the building.

In the 1980’s Harris sold Hidden Valley to Ron Wenzel, who had a German deli, The Ductman on the other side of Hamilton. The Dutchman’s Hidden Valley features homemade candies and peanut butter, smoked meat. One of the more unique offerings is bison.  Currently, the store is now owned and operated by Wenzel’s daughter and her husband.

Bullman Bridge

Bulman Bridge

The Bulman Bridge was located on the north side of the Leon River ten miles east of Hamilton near Rock House in the community named at various times Pulltight, Busyton, Snow Creek, Old Hamilton, and Rock Church. Rev. Henry Jefferson Bulman came to Hamilton County in 1871 where he bought a farm on the Leon River twelve miles east of Hamilton. The Bulman Bridge was named in his honor. The Bulman and other old bridges have been relocated to the Pecan Creek Park in Hamilton. — ECW
