MULVEY, TEXAS. Mulvey was on the Missouri, Kansas, and Texas railroad between Barnum and Fleming seventy miles northwest of Beaumont in eastern Polk County. The sawmill community was the site of the Mulvey Mills, owned by Allen and Company. In 1889 the mill had a daily capacity of 20,000 board feet. Mulvey, which appears on an 1897 railroad map of Texas, does not appear on subsequent editions.
