Decker & Arrott P.C. Opens A New Satellite Office in Bronte, Texas
Decker & Arrott P.C. has opened a new satellite office in downtown Bronte, Texas, in a historic building known as the Cumbie Building. This office is located in the back of the Cumbie Building, which was originally bought in 1904 by attorney Nick Arrott’s great-great-grandfather, Reverend R.M. Cumbie (the first pastor ever of the First Baptist Church in Bronte), in order to open and operate a dry goods store in it. The Cumbie Building is built out of rock quarried from an old quarry located somwhere around nearby Tennyson, Texas. Also, Decker & Arrott P.C.’s office in the back of the Cumbie Building is the same “back office” used by Reverend Cumbie, his son R.E. Cumbie, R.E.’s son-in-law J.B. Mackey, and R.E.’s granddaughter (and Nick’s mom) Susan Cumbie Williams in their operation of the dry goods store from around 1904 until 1996, which includes four generations spanning 92 years.
Now, despite about a seventeen year hiatus, a fifth Cumbie generation (Nick) is back in the building doing business! Come visit Nick and see how he and his mother renovated the Cumbie Building, including the awesome store front where local Bronte entrepreneur, Tammy Boyce (who helped a lot with the renovation as well), has opened Bronte’s General Store, complete with antiques, a coffee “saloon style” bar, and skylight! Nick will be at Decker & Arrott P.C.’s satellite Bronte office every first and fourth Thursday of every month from 9:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The Bronte office’s address is 119 West Main Street, Bronte, Texas 76993 (rear parking and entry).
