About Whistle Stop:
Whistle Stop Christmas began in 1996 with just a few people who wanted to decorate Cleburne in a special way for the Holidays. As the story goes, Rebecca Roe had gone to Marble Falls to visit some friends, and they had been telling her about the beautiful lights their town displayed each year at Christmas.
Rebecca thought this would be wonderful for Cleburne. But she didn't know how to get it started. Rebecca's husband, Robert, was chairman of the Cleburne Chamber of Commerce at the time, and he introduced to an energetic woman named Nell Dixon who had just taken the position as the chamber president.
The Roes Ben Franklin store had been accidentally double-shipped Christmas lights that year. Rebecca seizes the opportunity to decorate parts of the city with the extra lights. Rebecca asked Nell if they could call a meeting of community members who could be instrumental in spearheading an extravagant lighting display in Cleburne, and Nell said "Go for it."
