Spindletop Tips (1)

Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown Museum

Spindletop was named such due to the way the trees near the salt hill flared out as if there was an upside down spindle. It was a local playground for a long time, until the industrial explosion hit.

That is until oil was found just outside of town in Spindletop. In 1899, the first attempts were made, but bankrupt investors had to wait until more resources were available.

In 1901, the Lucas Gusher was erupting for 9 days before being capped. By the end of the year, this little hamlet was producing more oil than the rest of the world combined.

The Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown Museum is an indoor/outdoor recreation of the pioneer days. Buildings and their interiors are reminiscent of the era.

Entry fee is $3 for adult, $2 for seniors, $1 for kids 6~12 years.
Open Tuesday ~ Saturday 10am to 5pm
Sunday 1pm to 5pm
Closed Monday
